Agri View: America’s Youth Convention

DanAgri View, Education

Everett Griner talks about America’s foremost youth meeting in today’s Agri View.

America’s Youth Convention

America’s largest meeting of its young people takes place about this time every year. It is the National FFA Convention. They come from all over the nation. FFA, that’s Future Farmers of America, is one of the oldest youth organizations in America. Probably the largest too. It is a time for fun and business. It is easy to recognize any member because the all wear those dark blue jackets that identify the member by name and what chapter they are from. All I know about this year’s convention is that FFA has more chapters from more places with more members that ever before. One thing more. FFA, Future Farmers of America, involves a lot more than agriculture. They teach leadership and responsibility. That’s what the difference is all about.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner
