National FFA week to be celebrated February ;l{i- 23 FFA members all over the coun- try will promote FFA, agricultural education and the food and fiber in- dustry during National FFA Week, February 16-23. This year's theme is FFA- Leadership for a Growing Planet. During FFA Week and throughout the year, FFA chapters will pursue activities which show that they are leading the effort for a better en- viroament. Planting trees, starting community recycling efforts and restoring mining areas are just a few of the inititatives planned by various chapters across the country. The week also provides FFA members in thousands of chapters across the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands the chance to create awareness of and support for agricultural education and the FFA. Public service announcements at the local, state and national levels will help spread the message. Agricultural education classes stress hands-on experience in diver- se areas of agriculture. FFA ac- tivities provide leadership develop- ment, career training and award in- centives for young people. Mark Timm, national FFA president from Fillmore, Indiana, said FFA Week is an opportunity for members and communities to recognize achievements and ac- tivities available through FFA and agricultural education. This year's theme challenges FFA members to make a difference in their com- munities; to think globally but act locally. "We're young people trying to strike a balance between progressive agriculture and a healthy environment," Timm said. "As FFA members and students in agriculture classes, we are learning to wisely manage our resources, and gaining the leadership skills necessary to prepare for the diverse and challenging careers in agriculture." Each year FFA Week is held during the week of George Washington's birthday (traditional) to recognize his leader- ship and commitment to American agriculture. The National FFA Cen- ter is located on part of Washington's original Mt. Vernon estate near Alexandria, Virginia. FFA is a national organization of 387,042 members in 7,634 local chap- ters preparing for careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. Local, state and national activities and award programs provide opportunities for students to apply knowledge and skills acquired through agricultural education. FFA members strive to develop agricultural leadership, cooperation and citizenship.
