Texas Farm Bureau 2020 Virtual Leadership Conference

This year, Texas Farm Bureau is hosting the Virtual Leadership Conference for Texas youth!

Due to COVID-19, this annual summer conference has to be restructured, so the experience will be online.

Students will learn about the free enterprise system, the U.S. Constitution, public speaking, and participate in an online scavenger hunt.

The virtual event is FREE. Registration closes on May 30, and the online learning modules will be available from June 1-30.

Students will be entered to win prizes for completing the learning modules.
VLC t-shirt
Bluetooth speaker
36-ounce YETI Rambler
North Face Recon backpack

*All participants who complete the four learning modules will then be entered into a drawing for a set of Air Pods. One winner will be named from each of TFB’s 13 districts.

Any high school student entering their junior or senior year in August 2020 is eligible to attend. If your child already registered for the Youth Leadership Conference, they are automatically registered for the Virtual Leadership Conference.

If you have questions, contact Mia Balko, TFB Director of Youth Outreach, at mbalko@txfb.org.
