Idaho FFA Association
Idaho FFA State President
Hello Idaho FFA, and welcome to the exciting month of September! With school up and going we have a lot of events moving our way. There is never a bad time to join FFA, but the absolute best time to join is the first few weeks of school; there are lots of things for a new member to do at the beginning of the school year. So as summer ends, fairs finish up , and the school bell begins to ring, remember, FFA is always rising above to meet expectations.
Chapters have already started off the year big with barbeques, leadership workshops, and other kick-off meetings. Find out when these events are at your local level and get involved. Chapter visits from the Idaho State FFA are starting so look for us! We're coming to a classroom near you.

District Events will be happening in the blink of an eye as well, so watch for district socials, career development events and other activities. Last but not least- University of Idaho Ag Days will be on the 26th and 27th of this very month. There will be tours of the campus, judging events, a corn maze, and plenty of other fun activities. We hope to see tons of members at this year's Ag Days.
An inspiring idea I would like to leave you with is this quote: "All we have to decide is what to do wtih the time that is given us," J.R.R. Tolkien. We didn't choose to be born in this particular time place or circumstance. However, what we can choose is our path in life. Make the best of everything that you do and use the time that is given to you to the fullest. Thank you for reading and always remember, "Rise Above".
