The Suwannee Middle School Future Farmers of America (FFA) Chapter recently received the National Chapter Award and will be recognized at the November 2003 FFA National Convention in Louisville, KY. The chapter excelled in designing and implementing activities related to the quality standards of FFA that included recruitment, financial management, public relations, leadership and support group activities.

The Suwannee Middle School FFA Chapter also competed against 12 teams and won the opening and closing ceremonies career development event at the 2003 State FFA Convention. The competition required team members to perform the official ceremonies that are used to open and close FFA meetings. Participants were judged on their accuracy, poise and delivery.

Agricultural Education prepares students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in the global agriculture food, fiber and natural resources systems. The FFA Chapter at Suwannee Middle School develops interpersonal skills in teamwork, communications, human relations and social interaction, as well as builds character and promotes citizenship, volunteerism and patriotism.
