FFA Week is Here!
National FFA week is a time for FFA members to host activities that raise awareness about the role that FFA plays in the development of agriculture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education. National FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, George Washington’s birthday. This year, the week kicks off on Feb. 16 and culminates on Feb. 23.
The National FFA Board of Directors designated the week-long tradition, which began in 1948, in recognition of George Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. A group of young farmers founded FFA in 1928, influencing generations that agriculture is more than planting and harvesting - it involves science, business and more. The organization’s mission is to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population.
Today, FFA continues to help the next generation meet new agricultural challenges, develop unique talents and explore a broad range of career pathways. Today’s FFA members are tomorrow’s future biologists, chemists, veterinarians, engineers and entrepreneurs.
To help celebrate FFA Week the Buckeye High School chapter will be running a spirit week, Themes for the week are:
Tuesday Feb.19 - PJ Day
Wednesday Feb. 20- Dress Like a Farmer
Thursday Feb. 21- FFA Wear or Blue and Gold
Friday Feb. 22- Camo
The Smith Hughes Act in 1917 brought Agriculture Education to life in the secondary education. In 1928 the Future Farmers of America was founded in Kansas City, Missouri. At this time in history only male students were allowed to enroll in the class and also were only allowed to be in the school’s FFA chapter. In 1957 the Buckeye FFA chapter was founded. It wouldn’t be until 12 years later that the FFA allowed women to be members in 1969. We are celebrating 50 years of women in our organization! In 1988 Future Farmers of America changed its name to the National FFA Organization, to help meet the needs of the ever rapidly changing agriculture industry.
