Every year, FFA chapters across the country celebrate National FFA Week through events and opportunities. This year, National FFA Week is Feb. 18–25.

Winters FFA is hosting spirit days and events to share with other Winters High School students about the impact it has on its members and about the possible opportunities available.

Since its inception in 1955, the Winters FFA program has expanded and offered different hands-on opportunities and experiences for students in agriculture, business, public speaking, leadership and more.

This year Winters FFA is hosting an ice cream social on Tuesday, a livestock meeting on Wednesday, and a bowling night on Thursday.

FFA member Eden Miller said the fun activities give students an introduction to the Winters FFA members and the organization itself. President Ava Skinner said National FFA week activities are a way for them to show the school and the community about all the things FFA has to offer, and leads to recruitment opportunities.

During last year’s festivities, they brought baby livestock and tractors on campus and hosted flower identification sessions.

“It exposes the general school more to what we do out here,” Skinner said.

The community can follow the Winters FFA Chapter on Instagram @wintersffa and TikTok for regular updates from the officers.

However, one can help to support and celebrate Winters FFA achievements year-round. The Friends of Winters FFA is a nonprofit organization run by alumni, parents and community members who volunteer with the goal to help make sure that Winters FFA students have the tools and resources they need to succeed.

The group works with the Winters FFA advisors to help raise funds to cover the costs for leadership conferences, to fund contests and competition fees and travel expenses, to help purchase equipment for the WHS ag site and to provide scholarships to students who worked to gain their State FFA Degree.
