American Royal Complex

1701 American Royal Ct, Kansas City, MO



The Western Farm Show, CASE IH, and the American Royal are proud to partner to offer leadership and career preparation sessions for Kansas and Missouri FFA members on Friday, February 24th. The Farm Show is an incredible opportunity to reach students from across the two states while they are here at the American Royal Complex. What a great way for us to celebrate National FFA Week as well!

  • Exploring technology and innovation will be the focus of the 30 minute leadership sessions beginning at 9:30 a.m. in Wagstaff Theatre.  
  • Students can register to win prizes throughout the morning based on their participation in sessions and activities. “Unite Against Hunger” is the FFA canned and nonperishable food drive in support of the National FFA Week and FFA Day at the Show. Each chapter that brings in a minimum of 200 canned and nonperishable food items will qualify for a drawing. We’ll draw one winner from each state and award them with a $1,000 check to be solely used for educational purposes for the good of the chapter. 

How do I register?
Complete the form below with the number of students your chapter plans to bring to the Show and click submit. You will receive complimentary tickets in February along with a letter providing details about parking and other information. 

The deadline for ticket requests is February 10th, 2023
