Please check our Facebook page for the most up-to-date news about our FFA chapter!

Our members are busy throughout the year - going to camps in the summer, helping with greenhands in the fall, selling fruit in the winter, practicing for their contests AND planning the annual banquet in the spring. Check out the other pages to learn more about these terrific activities!

We are always looking for great service projects and volunteer contest coaches, so if you would like to get involved please contact Jessica Daberkow at jessica.daberkow@isd330.org 

We look forward to hearing from you!

This also includes links to instructors emails so you can learn more about specific programs. If you have any questions or need any help in your search, please talk to Halbur!
