FFA in an inter-curricular program within the agriculture department. To be an FFA member, you must be enrolled in at least one agriculture class. Members do many activities that promote premier leadership, personal growth, and career success. We compete in numerous career development events and competitions at the local, district, and state levels. Some of these competitions include public speaking, food science, ag communications, veterinary science, and ag business management. Leadership conference opportunities also exist, such as leadership camp, 212 conference, and Washington Leadership Conference. Some of the community service activities within FFA include Ag in the classroom presentation at elementary schools, participating in the craft show and assisting at the engine show, and picking up leaves in Somonauk. Through FFA, members have fun and develop leadership and career skills to help them excel in the future.
