(NAFB) — This week, students from around the country will be busy sharing the importance of agriculture, all in celebration of National Ag Day which is today, March 23.
The day celebrates agriculture and provides an opportunity for those in the industry to share the importance of agriculture with a broader audience. The future of agriculture is strong, and this is evident in the many student-led agriculture organizations.
Students from FFA, 4-H, Agriculture Future of America, and Minorities in Agriculture, Natural Resources, and Related Sciences will share information on the critical role agriculture plays in our culture and economy.
An FFA news release says, “National Ag Day gives students from agriculture youth organizations the chance to work together and share the importance of agriculture and agricultural education with our national government leaders.”
Students will also learn skills this week that they can use as they go forward in their lives and strengthen agriculture along the way. All this week, student leaders will work together virtually to discover how they can continue to be advocates for agriculture while telling the vital story of ag throughout the nation.
