THE WALSH COUNTY PRESS WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 2015 Page 7 2015 National FFA Week is Feb' 21-28 BISMARCK, N.D. -- The ND FFA will celebrate National FFA Week Feb. 21-28, 2015. Go All Out is the theme this year and more than 4800 FFA members across North Dakota will partici- pate in FFA Week activities. Going All Out is not only a way of life for FFA members, but it's also a call to action for others. FFA members set a positive ex- ample with their leadership, work ethic, and community service ac- tivities. The focus of National FFA Week is to tell America about the great opportunities available for youth in agriculture. From its be- ginnings in 1928 as the Future Farmers of America, the National FFA Organization today reaches out to all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. From urban to rural schools, FFA is committed to developing charac- ter and leadership skills and preparing members for a lifetime of success in one of hundreds of careers in agriculture. FFA chapters across the state are celebrating National FFA Week by planning special events like community service projects, FFA awareness, and farm safety workshops. Parshall FFA advisor, Julie Woodbury says, "Farm Food is a big hit with our school staff annually. Students prepare the food and invite staff members to lunch." In Maddock, members decorate t-shirts for auction at their annual T's for Tools event. Community members and local businesses bid on the shirts and proceeds help fund needed tools and materials for the agriculture mechanics lab. North Dakota boasts the high- est per capita membership in the United States, with 80 chapters in communities throughout the state. FFA students are future chemists, veterinarians, government offi- cials, entrepreneurs, international business leaders, teachers and pre- mier professionals in numerous other careers. Transferrable life skills are the basis for the ag edu- cation curriculum and therefore are not only instrumental in help- ing students develop their interests but their future careers.
