The National FFA Organization is seeking college students or recent college graduates pursuing degrees in journalism, public relations, telecommunications or a closely related field to share with the world the news and feature stories coming out of the 90th National FFA Convention & Expo Oct. 25-28, 2017, in Indianapolis.

Newsroom Crew interns are expected to arrive on Monday, Oct. 23 and work through Saturday, Oct. 28. Your reward? A small stipend, inside access to an amazing event, coaching on how to become a better communicator and hopefully some awesome clips and experience that will help you in the future. This internship may be eligible for college credit so ask your school's advisor.


More than 60,000 people from across the nation visited our convention and expo a year ago. Those people come to compete, come to be inspired, come to be honored and come to generally express their affinity of FFA affiliation. We need you to help tell their stories. Don't worry if you're not well-versed in FFA. We'll help with the background you help with the story!

You may be published in any number of ways, ranging from our national magazine FFA New Horizons to our expansive online and social media outlets. Some ideas will be assigned, but we'll also need you to use your skills to network and find those organic stories that inevitably happen when that many people committed to our nation's future gather together.

To join us in Indianapolis, please show us examples of strong writing and­ interviewing skills, demonstrate how you're not afraid to go get a story and that you're able to work under deadline.


We need radio reporters who are comfortable behind a microphone. You'll work closely with the National Association of Farm Broadcasters to coordinate and record interviews with dignitaries, award winners and more. You'll have access to the stories of 60,000 people all gathered in one place. And your material may be distributed over national outlets, including SiriusXM Satellite Radio.

You'll need editing experience, too, to help package your raw interviews.


More than two million people connected with FFA social media content during last year's convention and expo. We think four million people should be in that conversation in 2017. Can you help us get there with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? These positions will require writing skills relevant to the social web, a seamless ability to pull and edit great photos, knowledge of best practices in constructing posts and a mind that can easily pull the most interesting parts from a mountain of content. We'll also need people who can shoot excellent and we mean excellent photos and video from mobile devices while around the convention and expo.
