Mandan Students Celebrate FFA Week

Posted:

Nearly 560,000 students across the U.S. are wearing the blue and gold for National FFA week.

Mandan FFA members are celebrating the week by sharing their experiences with future members.
These high school FFA officers are playing an agriculture based "Minute to Win It" competition at the Mandan Middle School.
The Mandan Chapter has roughly 120 FFA members from both the farm and the city.

(Sydni Schmidt / Mandan FFA Secretary) "FFA is one of the greatest organizations that you can be in because it, encompasses more than just cows and livestock. There is so many other things. Ag Sales is something that I do and you learn how to talk to people, and convince people and persuade people. It's so much more than just agriculture."
(Tessa Keller / Mandan FFA Reporter) "It's not just for farm kids, that's why they took the future farmers of America out of it, so other kids feel that they can be involved with it. It's for everybody. Anybody who shares a love for agriculture."

FFA was founded by a group of young farmers back in 1928.
Currently there are nearly 76-hundred FFA chapters throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
