Next week, more than 760,000 FFA members across the country will share the story of agriculture as part of National FFA Week. National FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses February 22, George Washington’s birthday.
This year, the week kicks off on February 20 and culminates on Saturday, February 27. The National FFA Board of Directors designated the weeklong tradition, which began in 1948, recognizing Washington’s legacy as a farmer. During FFA Week, the six national FFA officers will connect virtually with chapters across the country.
National FFA Week is also a time for alumni and supporters to advocate for agricultural education and FFA. Alumni and Supporters will celebrate Alumni Day on Tuesday, February 22, and 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. Friday, February 26, all FFA members and supporters are encouraged to wear blue and show their FFA pride.
