Wisconsin Students Celebrating National FFA Week
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/22/2016

It's National FFA Week, which means agriculture students throughout the state will be busy promoting their favorite organization in a variety of ways. The celebration is held annually during the same week as George Washington's birthday, who himself was a life-long farmer and leader of our nation.

According to FFA officials, the event was developed to tie together all the promotional efforts of individual FFA chapters and high school agriculture programs.

"During National FFA Week the state FFA officer team will be advocating for FFA and Agricultural Education throughout their sections," State FFA President Sally Albers told Wisconsin Ag Connection. They will have a busy week visiting local chapters, celebrating the week with FFA members, and participating in media interviews where they have the opportunity to share the story of FFA and how it's continues to grow leaders, build communities, and strengthen agriculture."

Albers says each school is very unique, but they all take the time to celebrate another successful year of agricultural education.

Meanwhile, National FFA President Taylor McNeel will be touring Wisconsin schools and agribusinesses along with state officers during the week.

Nationally, FFA reaches out to all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. With over a half million members, the organization has a history of service and legacy of leadership.
