The Bonners Ferry FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week February 16-23, 2013. This year’s theme is Grow, and it celebrates more than 80 years of FFA traditions while eagerly anticipating the organization’s future. More than 550,000 members nationwide will participate in National FFA Week activities at local, state and national levels. These members come from rural, suburban and urban environments and are interested in the diversity of careers within agriculture. FFA members are the innovators and leaders of tomorrow. Through agricultural education and hands-on learning, they are preparing for the 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 and annually encompasses February 22, George Washington’s birthday.
FFA Week gives FFA members the chance to inform the public about agriculture in their community and around the country. The Bonners Ferry FFA Chapter has had many opputunites throughout the year to expand their knowledge. Members praticipate in Career Development Events or CDE’s. These are events that take knowledge that students learn in the classroom and apply it real world scenarios. Bonners Ferry has competed at many district level events as well as the state level events. Not only does the Bonners Ferry FFA Chapter compete they also do numerous community service events as well, to help make the community a better place to be. Some of the events that the chapter has helped at was the Grange Event this past fall, and the Rich Carlson Benefit. FFA gives a chance for students to grow to help them with future success. Many things could not be made possible without the agriculture industry.
