  Greenhand Jamboree & Success Conference
Sign In

In previous years, we have conducted two separate conferences for 10-12th graders and high school freshman. With the desire to keep chapters together and apply safety and social distancing protocols, our state officer team has made the decision to combine the Greenhand Jamboree and Success Conference into a one day, all high school student event. 

This email is to let you know that registration for the 2021 Rise Above Conference is officially OPEN! This conference will look different from previous years but will follow the same format as the 2021 Discovery Conference, so please read through this email to answer any questions you may have. 

The Rise Above Conference is a wonderful opportunity for all high school students, not only introducing your freshman to FFA and the opportunities our organization provides while still challenging your upperclassmen to dive deeper into how they can impact their chapters and communities. 

Registration for this year’s conference will look different from previous conferences you may have attended. To keep social distancing and safety procedures in place, chapters will purchase a conference table that can be filled with no more than five students. Tables are available for a flat-rate fee, and chapters will receive the material for up to 5 students, regardless of how many students are registered. For example, if you purchase a table but only end up bringing 3 students, you will still receive the materials for five. Chapters can register for a maximum of three tables to start, and if space allows we will contact those on the waiting list. There are four registration options listed below that vary in price and add on of T-Shirts and FFA Manuals

Because there is no overnight lodging, you will not have to submit student names and gender breakdowns. However, you will be asked to send in your number of students attending and t-shirt sizes two weeks before the conference so that we are able to communicate with the camps and t-shirt company to ensure that we have enough materials.  Students should plan to wear casual clothing for the conference. Additionally, masks will be required by all in attendance in order to participate in the 2021 Rise Above Conference. Tables will be socially distanced with only five students per table.  Students will need to fill out the new online medical form, which will be emailed to you after your registration has been submitted.

Registration and payment for the conference need to be completed and postmarked by Thursday, February 11, 2021.  You will complete the online registration through the link provided at the bottom of this email and mail a printed copy of your invoice along with full payment to the Georgia FFA Association. No faxed or emailed registration information will be accepted. Registration is only complete upon the receipt of payment. If the conference has to be canceled because of COVID-19 or safety reasons, payments will be returned.

If you have any questions about the Rise Above Conference please don’t hesitate to contact Andy Paul at the office (706) 552-4457.
