Every February, FFA members come together and form a week full of fun and informative activities to commemorate the role they play in the development of agricultural education.
According to Rachel Haskell, a high school senior, FFA week is, “a celebration and a chance to recognize FFA.” It is a nationally recognized week where students get to commemorate all the things they love about agriculture.
One of the officers, Claire Bennett, says there are currently 14 other officers. Each one is involved in setting up and organizing activities throughout the week. The activities for FFA week change a little bit from year to year, and in order to decide what activities FFA is going to participate in, the officers meet and discuss topics and activities.
Each day of the week, FFA does a different activity. This year, FFA did things like going to Level Up arcade, selling bags of popcorn with agriculture facts on them, holding a labor auction, having a merchants lunch and putting together a petting zoo for the younger grades.
Once again, FFA has had a successful week of informing others about their purpose and goals.
