Ag students across U.S. preparing for National FFA Week

IARN — More than 735,000 FFA members across the country will share the story of agriculture as part of National FFA Week. The week starts on Saturday, February 19, and culminates on Saturday, February 26.

“National FFA Week is an important week for members across the country, as not only do we celebrate the organization, but we share the message of FFA and agriculture,” National FFA Advisor Dr. James Woodard said. “FFA chapters across the country celebrate agriculture while thanking their supporters.”

Woodard also said FFA and agricultural education continue to play a key role in not only developing the next generation of leaders but also developing those who will be filling the ever-growing need in the talent pipeline.

FFA members will share agriculture with fellow students and their communities while also giving back to their communities through service projects. The six national officers will also connect with chapters around the country.
