Each year, FFA chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week. The week-long tradition began in 1947 when 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. The first National FFA Week was held in 1948.

Today, FFA Week always runs Saturday to Saturday and encompasses Feb. 22, Washington’s birthday. To celebrate National FFA week in our chapter we had a few activities for the school to participate in. Every day of the week there was a trivia question about our FFA chapter that the students were able to answer. The winner of each day received a candy bar and all of the correct answers kept together and drawn at the end of the week to win a box with the FFA emblem laser engraved on the top.
Tuesday was FFA t-shirt day. Wednesday the officers served breakfast for the teachers. They served caramel rolls with orange juice and coffee. On Thursday, students brought their toy tractors and put in the hallway for display. Then on Friday, we encouraged the whole school to wear blue in honor of National FFA week and also to support our Nighthawk boys basketball team as they played their last home game against the Beach Buccaneers.
