  • Q: I don’t want to be a farmer! Why should I be in FFA?

    Posted by:

    FFA isn’t just for farmers! FFA members develop skills and gain experiences that are beneficial for everyone, regardless of their future career choices. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America, but we are the Future Biologists, Future Chemists, Future Veterinarians, Future Engineers and Future Entrepreneurs of America, too.

  • Q: Is FFA a big commitment? I have other activities like sports that I need to give priority to.

    Posted by:

    A: FFA allows you to “pick and choose” which activities you participate in. Many members are in multiple clubs and sports and learn valuable time management skills.

  • Q: Will FFA help me get into college?

    Posted by:

    A: Absolutely! FFA looks very impressive on a resume. FFA can also connect you to scholarships and help you learn about career opportunities! The National FFA Organization awards more than $2.5 million in scholarships annually, in addition to MN FFA Scholarships and other agricultural businesses offered each year. Plus, FFA can help you to get volunteer hours, which are important for many different applications.
