The 2017 State Convention of the Oklahoma FFA is set for May second and third at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City.

A total of $136,250 in scholarships will be awarded to FFA members at the 2017 convention. Besides the general sessions, FFA members will be able to visit the two day Career Show, improve their leadership skills in eight Leadership Workships and seven Career Success Worskshops and participate in the Days of Service with the Oklahoma Regional Food Bank on the Monday before the Convention and the Thursday after the convention.

During the convention's fifth general session, the top four Supervised Ag Education Programs undertaken by FFA members will be recognized with the Stars Over Oklahoma program- honoring the Star in Agriscience, Star in Ag Placement, Star in Agribusiness and the Star in Ag Production(otherwise known as the Star Farmer). In the final general session on Wednesday evening, the new state officer team for 2017-18, as elected by the delegates to the convention, will be announced and introduced to the convention.
