KING WILLIAM — The King William FFA Chapter in King William, Virginia will celebrate National FFA Week Feb. 15-22. This year's theme is "Ignite" and it embraces more than 80 years of FFA traditions while looking forward to the organization's future. More than half a million members will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state, and national levels. These members have a passion for agriculture.
Designated as National FFA Week in 1947, the week of George Washington's birthday is FFA Week, and runs from Saturday to Saturday. FFA Week gives FFA members an opportunity to educate the public about agriculture. During the week, chapters conduct a variety of activities to help others in their school and communities learn about FFA and agricultural education. The King William FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week by participating in the following activities:
• Spirit dress up days for the week
• Teacher appreciation breakfast
• State officer visit and breakfast
• School-wide FFA quiz
• Cookout and corn hole celebration at the end of the week
Today's FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural and hands-on learning, they are preparing for more than 300 career opportunities in the food, fiber, and natural resources industry. National FFA Week is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
