Future Farmers of America plays a strong role in many high schools across the United States. Each year, student and alumni members take a week to celebrate the gratitude they feel for the organization.
National FFA Week is a time for chapters around the country to share what FFA is and how it impacts its members on a daily basis. This year the celebration took place from February 18 through 25. Members young and old hosted fundraisers, spirit days and took to social media to voice their thankfulness to the organization.
The national organization's days of the special week are planned and have events to promote local chapters.
