The Texas FFA Convention Student Media Program provides a semi-professional environment for students to cultivate skills related to journalism, photography, videography, and video production. It is a week-long experiential learning environment that enables members to apply creativity and technical skills in a fun and practical setting. 

There are three different roles students can apply for:

Reporter - Responsibilities include writing news articles covering the happenings of the Texas FFA Convention the week of July 5-9, 2021. Must be an excellent writer and be familiar with AP Style. Written communication and interviewing skills are imperative.

The staff will have their work published online at texasffa.org, the convention app, and on the association’s various social media outlets. In addition, The Convention Report video news package will be broadcasted during the final general session.
