Area Chapters Celebrating National FFA Week

It’s National FFA Week.

It’s all about celebrating the incredible impact of agriculture, science and the essential role FFA plays in shaping the future of farming and leadership.

Hartford Union High School is celebrating with fun events and dress up days. Wednesday, February 21is dedicated to jeans, boots and flannel.

Agricultural Science Teacher Kim Yohn told WTKM News that students and teachers get involved with FFA Week every year.

"Every year, we have dress up days and students and faculty get involved. It's fun...and they can collect FFA Bucks for getting involved, and then on Friday they can exchange it for ice cream." 

By dressing up, students collect FFA bucks to cash in for an ice cream treat on Friday.

For National FFA week last Monday, February 19 the Slinger FFA members were out and about on their annual Bun Run. Every year during FFA Week, they travel around Washington County handing out donuts to our local farmers to show their appreciation for everything that they do.
