Subject: State FFA Convention

Advisors, Directors, and Stakeholders,

As you may know, this afternoon Governor Herbert announced statewide efforts to proactively stop the potential spread of COVID-19.  He has asked that we limit public gatherings in Utah to no more than 100 people for the next two weeks, beginning Monday 3/16/2020. The recommendations given today will be re-evaluated in the coming days and we could very well see an extension of this for longer than the current 14 days

Due to today's announcements, we regretfully announce that the 92ndUtah FFA State Convention on March 30-31 has been postponed indefinitely in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This unprecedented measure of postponing State Convention is to ensure the highest level of health and well-being for our students and the adults who serve them. Governor Gary Herbert and State Superintendent Sydnee Dickson have published serious recommendations that include "postponing or canceling mass gatherings".

Our host campus, Southern Utah University is in full support of this recommendation from the Governor's Office, as the health, safety, and well-being of their campus community is their top priority.  Thus, our event is officially postponed until further notice.

We encourage you to contact your hotels to cancel reservations as quickly as possible. Although many reservations have cancellation windows of 24-48 hours, with the mass cancelations that will be taking place, we need to be as proactive as possible with hotels due to the size of our event.

JudgingCard has closed/cancelled registration and will create a new registration for us once we reschedule. There have been 4 schools who have paid their balance in full, and those 4 will have the option of holding a credit with JudgingCard to be used at a later date, or, may be refunded if desired.

We are unable to make an official statement regarding when or where State Convention will be held due to the nature of this situation.

 Thank you for your patience as we work through this.


Megan Cook
Utah FFA Executive Secretary
