Each year, Future Farmers of America (FFA) chapters across the United States celebrate National FFA Week. It is a time for chapter members to host group activities, conduct service projects, recruit new members, share agricultural information with others, advocate for agriculture, and show off their FFA pride. To honor Georgia Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer, National FFA Week is held around Washington’s birthday, February 22.
This year, the Carver Middle School FFA chapter celebrated National FFA Week with dress-up days for members to participate in, including Camo Day, Hat Day and Twin Day. As part of the week-long celebration, FFA members also held an appreciation breakfast for the school’s faculty and conducted a daily “Are You Smarter than an FFA Member” challenge for the staff. All students were able to participate in an FFA Trivia challenge where the daily winner earned prizes. CMS ended their celebration by collecting money for the school’s Wall of Honor for Veterans.
