The Future Farmers of America are actively working on and preparing for FFA competitions this fall and spring.  FFA was the acronym for Future Farmers of America but the association, in an effort to broaden its potential membership beyond youth working in traditional "production" agriculture, changed the official name of the organization from Future Farmers of America to the National FFA Organization in 1988; it is still commonly referred to as FFA. Middle school students compete in various events, in several major areas including Career Development Events (CDE's), Supervised Agricultural Experience programs (SAE's), and Leadership Development Events (LDEs).  Students are supervised by agricultural education teachers in cooperation with parents, employers and other adults who assist individuals in the development and achievement of educational and career goals.  Contact Jessica Jones for details.
