February is Black History Month. Black History Month is celebrated annually in the United States during the month of February.
National FFA Week, February 22-29, began in the week of George Washington’s birthday in 1948, in recognition of Washington’s legacy as an agriculturist and farmer. A young group of farmers founded FFA in 1928 with a mission to prepare future generations for the challenges of feeding a growing population.
Each year, FFA Chapters around the country celebrate National FFA Week. It’s a time to share what FFA is and the impact it has on members every day.
