National FFA Week: February 15-22, 2014

FFA WeekDid you know?
In 1947, at a National FFA Board of Directors meeting, the week of George Washington’s birthday was designated as National FFA Week. Today, FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, Washington’s birthday.

Educate and advocate!
FFA Week is an opportunity for FFA members, alumni and sponsors to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. It’s a time to share with local, state and national audiences what FFA is and the impact it has on members every day.

Have fun!
There are a variety of events throughout the week that allow a chapter to communicate with others what FFA is all about and ignite a passion for agriculture! Some chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, others conduct “Ag Olympics” competitions, while still others reach out to the community through service projects. This is just a small sampling of how chapters promote FFA in their schools and communities.

Share!
