National FFA Week Comes to a Close

NATIONAL FFA WEEK COMES TO A CLOSE

[caption id="attachment_3145" align="aligncenter" width="686"]Image courtesy of FFA.org Image courtesy of FFA.org[/caption] Every year, National FFA Organization chapters from around the U.S. celebrate the agricultural education and vocation program. The week enables these young individuals to communicate with others who share their passion, gain new perspectives, and light that spark in each person to pursue a career in the industry. The tradition of the entire week-long celebration began in 1947, when it was decided to place the event during the week of George Washington's birthday as a sign of respect to the legacy he left in agriculture. Over the course of the Saturday-to-Saturday (Feb. 21-28) occasion, local chapters will hold events such as service projects in order to reach out to their communities. Through this, they can show people that FFA not only teaches teens about agricultural, but also about life in general. FFA enjoys passionate support from many, younger and older, who know the good that comes from the program. Even celebrities get in on the action, such as country music star Justin Moore: The official celebration may be wrapping up tomorrow, but it doesn't end there. Later on this year in the Fall, all FFA chapters meet in Louisville, Kentucky for the annual National FFA Convention, where well over 60,000 people will join together for 4 days in order to further expand on all the great things that the organization has to offer. Please join us in thanking all those involved with FFA, not just the students but the teachers and leaders as well, for all that they are doing to drive the next generation of agriculture!
