Students to mark FFA Week
Placeholder Image
The Bradwell Institute FFA Chapter will celebrate National FFA Week Feb. 17-24.
Blue Jackets, Gold Standards is the theme this year and it embodies the most recognizable symbol of the organization, the blue corduroy jacket, to the ideals and traditions of national life, gold standards. Nearly half a million members around the nation will participate in activities at the local and state levels.
The focus of the week is to tell America about the opportunities available to youth. From its beginnings in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization today reaches all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA is committed to developing character and leadership skills and preparing members for a life of civic leadership and career success.
Members have opportunities to attend national conferences, develop a supervised agricultural projects, learn skills and serve their communities. The program uses classroom instruction and hands-on learning in agricultural science education.  
FFA members can earn awards, recognition and scholarships to pursue career goals. One of every five Americans is employed in the food, fiber and natural resources industries of agriculture and FFA members are a part of these industries.  
Bradwell Chapter members are the leaders of tomorrow.  They are well-mannered, perceptive and willing to help others through community service. They are success-oriented students who are driven to achieve their goals.
National FFA Week is sponsored by Case IH as a project of the National FFA Foundation. The foundation is the fundraising arm of the National FFA and supports programs by working with sponsors to raise funds for scholarships.
