Little kids, big education! At the Meridian FFA Chapter Agricultural Exposition (Ag Expo), every first-grade student in the West Ada School District attends to learn what agriculture is really about.

The Ag Expo is a three-day-long event, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 2 p.m. on the Sept. 26-28. Each first-grade class spends on average of 2 hours at the Ag Expo, and travels to 26 different stations. These stations range from tractors to live animals, dairy products to livestock feeds, tack to camping safety, and much more.

Members of the Meridian FFA Chapter put on a huge portion of this event. Tour guides lead each first-grade class, making sure that every student is comfortable and having fun. Speakers run each station, sharing their own knowledge about the species or topic they are teaching.

Finally, many dedicated members work to put on this event by setting up items, loading and unloading supplies, and working together to ensure that the best possible event is being put forth.

Community members and family are welcome to attend the Ag Expo open house that will take place 5-7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 27. We hope to see you there!
