FFA is an organization for young men and women who are interested in the industry of agriculture. The FFA started in 1928 in Kansas City, Missouri as organization for young men and was originally called the Future Farmers of America. In the early seventies, the constitution was changed to allow for young women to become members of the organization. Then in the early eighties the Future Farmers of America changed their name to FFA. This was done because the industry of agriculture encompasses much more than farming.
High school agricultural programs are structured to involve three different areas: Classroom, Supervised Agricultural Experience, and FFA. FFA members exhibit their Supervised Agricultural Experience projects at the Clayton County Fair. SAE programs are designed to give members practical experience and to learn by doing. Exhibiting these projects at the fair allows FFA members to evaluate their progress and to show the citizens of Clayton County what they have accomplished.
