Perham FFA participates in state convention


The 84th annual Minnesota Future Farmers of America convention was held April 28-30 in St. Paul, drawing more than 3,000 participants, including a team of 28 students from Perham High School.

Some students competed in career development events at the convention. These events are meant to help develop the ability to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market, said Perham’s FFA Advisor, Carl Aakre, in an email to the Focus.
