National FFA Week: February 18-25, 2012


FFA Week gives members a chance to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters host teacher appreciation breakfasts, conduct “Ag Olympics” competitions, speak to the public about agriculture, volunteer for community service projects and more.

The week of George Washington’s birthday was designated as National FFA Week in 1947 at a National FFA Board of Directors meeting. FFA Week always runs from Saturday to Saturday, and encompasses February 22, Washington’s birthday.


This week the Northern Ag Network’s Russell Nemetz talked with Lauren Phares with the Big Timber FFA Chapter in Montana about National FFA Week.
