Windy City FFA Website

Agriculture is the worlds largest and most vital industry. It was the first industry to ever be established and survives the test of time to continue producing food, fiber and shelter for all living creatures on earth! Without agriculture we as humans could not survive!

Being the most imperitive industry to our survival, students need to have a comprehensive understanding of agriculture. This aquisition of knowledge can happen through enrollment in the course!

In KWHS agriculture classes, students develop knowledge and ability in four major areas during each course. These areas include: Leadership. Science, Managment and Business.

*** There are 3 components to Agricultural Education, of which only the first is joining an Agriculture class.

*** The second part of developing a well-rounded agricultural education is to have a Supervised Agricultural Experience (or SAE). This is an experience for the student outside of class where the student gains experience in hours and/or cash profit. Examples of this can be in the form of a job, volunteering, scientific experiments, or owning your own business.

*** FFA is the third component to a well rounded agricultural education. FFA is a co-curricular component of agricultural education - meaning it is part of the curriculum - it is not EXTRAcurricular! FFA is the largest youth leadership organization in the country and is currently at 540,379 active members and growing! FFA used to be known as "The Future Famers of America", but a name change to "The National FFA Organization" occured to reflect the diversity in the agricultural industry. You don't have to be a farmer to be in ag! FFA develops leadership skills, self-confidence, speaking skills, employability skills, decision making skills, and other traits that encourage youth to become productive, contributing adults. The National FFA Organization gives out over 2 million dollars in scholarships each year! Traveling opportunities, ranging from state wide, to national and international travel exist for those active in FFA. The connections and friendships that FFA members make are valuable and last a lifetime!
