Carbon High School FFA Press Release
Who gets an entire week to celebrate their club? Carbon FFA!
The National Future Farmers of America (FFA) Organization was founded in 1928 by 33 young farm boys in Kansas City. Today, the National FFA Organization remains committed to the individual student, providing a path to achievement in premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education. It has grown from those 33 young men to over 579,678 members, accepting both girls and boys.
Carbon FFA is excited to start this year with many agricultural activities that will involve all students that attend. Carbon High is holding FFA Week Sept. 1-5.
On Wednesday, there will be the annual FFA birthday party and also a chapter meeting in which all are invited to attend.
On Thursday, there will be Greenhand Officer tryouts. Come to Mrs. Pressett’s room A-1 to get involved in a leadership position. Also, there will be AG Olympics held at Pioneer Park at 4 p.m. There will be many agricultural fun games for all that attend.
Finally, on Friday, Carbon FFA will be volunteering at Little Hands on the Farm at the Utah State Fair. This has been a service project FFA participates in every year. Little Hands on the Farm gets young children introduced to agriculture at a young age. All due-paying members may attend. Member dues are $17 and field trip dues are $20.
Help raise the “steaks” with Carbon FFA by encouraging your high school students to participate in FFA events throughout the week and the rest of the year.
