  1.  Illinois FFA State Officers Celebrate National FFA Week

Did someone say, seven days of fun filled festivities celebrating agriculture and the members of FFA chapters that make up the National FFA Organization? National FFA Week kicks off on Saturday, February 20, 2021, and spans the rest of the week ending on Saturday, February 27,2021. There will be events going on all week long at the chapter, state, and national levels, and the Illinois FFA State Officers want to help you celebrate!

We encourage everyone to participate in the daily Illinois FFA Social Media challenge that will highlight your FFA journey. There will also be a profile picture filter available on February 20, 2021, that you can apply to your Facebook page to show your support and excitement for FFA.

The fun doesn’t stop there! The state officer team is excited to travel and visit communities virtually, they are also thrilled to announce that they will be doing a Facebook Live every day of FFA Week at 11 a.m. to share more about their FFA Experiences and answer any questions you may have.

We hope to see you either in person or virtually throughout the 2021 National FFA Week!

  1.  Give FFA Day 

National FFA Week is February 20-27, 2021. For one day during National FFA Week, we are celebrating the spirit of giving in FFA with Give FFA Day for the 24 hours of Thursday, February 25th. All donations made during those hours will go directly to the State Foundation of your choice.

Here are two steps you can take now to start celebrating Give FFA Day with us:


  1.  Connect to Fun for National FFA Week

We encourage FFA members to join National FFA on Wednesday, Feb. 24, and Thursday, Feb. 25, of National FFA Week at 9 a.m., Noon, 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST for some FFA, agriculture and agricultural education trivia. Each session will last 30 minutes, and National FFA will do two rounds of trivia per session. Winners will receive fun prize boxes.
