Starting Saturday, more than 760,000 FFA members across the country will share the story of agriculture as part of National FFA Week. Whether it is through service projects or community gatherings, this special week is a time for FFA members to raise awareness about the role the National FFA Organization plays in developing agriculture’s future leaders and the importance of agricultural education.
National FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses February 22, George Washington’s birthday. This year it kicks off on February 20 and culminates on February 27. The week-long tradition, which began in 1948, recognizes Washington’s legacy as a farmer.
During FFA Week, the six national FFA officers will connect virtually with chapters across the country. Alumni and supporters will also advocate for agricultural education and FFA, as they will celebrate Alumni Day on Tuesday, February 22. Then on Thursday, February 25, the National FFA Foundation will celebrate Give FFA Day, a 24-hour campaign encouraging the public to support various needs impacting FFA members. And on Friday, February 26, all FFA members and supporters are encouraged to wear blue and show their FFA pride.
