212° is the temperature at which water boils - focuses on taking students to the boiling point of leadership. At 211° water is extremely hot, but just one more degree gets us to the next level, the boiling point. This conference focuses on the development of the individual student. Students will be challenged to push the limits of their leadership.

A dance will be held on Friday evening. We will be monitoring attendance so that only conference participants are at the dance. Any advisors that are not attending board meetings are required to be present at the dance for supervision.
In accordance with the Nebraska Department of Education policies, state FFA staff will not provide direct supervision of the students. If there is a supervision or discipline incident, our staff will immediately refer it to the local FFA advisor for action. If the advisor is not present at the conference, we will follow the procedures as outlined on the supervision/discipline form.
All students must bring with them a medical release form and code of conduct form. These forms are available online here.
