LOUISVILLE, Ky., October 26, 2013 – The 2013 FFA National Convention is coming to Louisville this week and Toyota will be supporting the venerable organization as an event sponsor.

Running Oct. 30-Nov. 1, the annual FFA National Convention & Career Show is the largest congregation of FFA members in the country and is solely organized and produced by FFA students. More than 50,000 students (14-18 years old) and advisors are expected to attend the conference at the Kentucky Exposition Center.

Toyota will have a number of interactive elements at the conference, with vehicles such as the Camry, Tacoma and Tundra on display. Toyota-sponsored activities include: a Corolla Teen Safe Driving Simulator, a Bass Casting Challenge, an appearance by professional Toyota Angler Mike Iaconelli, and a Toyota Re-Charge Lounge where attendees can unwind and charge their cell and smart phones for free.

About FFA

FFA stands for Future Farmers of America, an organization founded in 1928 by a group of young farmers. The mission was to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population. FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet those challenges by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways. In 1988, the organization changed its name to FFA to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture, especially in the fields of engineering, biology, chemistry and veterinary sciences.
