On February 20 – 27, 2016, FFA Chapters around the country will be celebrating National FFA Week. Starting back in 1947, the National FFA Board of Directors designated the week of George Washington’s birthday as National FFA Week in recognition of his legacy as an agriculturist and farmer.
This week is an opportunity for FFA members, alumni and sponsors, like Christensen Farms, to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. Find out what your local FFA Chapter is doing to celebrate during National FFA Week.
