Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE)
Career Development Events (CDE's)
Other Awesome Opportunities FFA has to Offer!
-State FFA Convention; Pullman, Washington
-National FFA Convention; Louisville, Kentucky

Learning to do, doing to learn. Earning to live, living to serve.
What is FFA?
What do the letters "FFA" stand for?
Students with an SAE learn by doing. With help from your agricultural teachers (Mr. Pile and Ms. Treich), you can develop an SAE project based on one or more SAE categories:
What is an SAE?
A program designed to help its members develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways.
The letters "FFA" stand for Future Farmers of America; however, in 1988 the official name of the organization was changed from "Future Farmers of America" to "The National FFA Organization" to reflect the growing diversity of agriculture.
Own and operate an agricultural business (e.g. a lawn care service, livestock operation, holiday poinsettia production and sales).
Get a job or an internship on a farm or ranch at an agricultural based business, or in a school or factory laboratory.
Research and Experimentation
Plan and conduct a science experiment (you can use your science project that you're already required to do in your biology class). We have 14 students qualified to go to the national science fair in Louisville with their projects!
Explore careers in agriculture by attending an agricultural career fair, or creating a report or documentary on the work of a veterinarian (for example).

CDE's help students develop the abilities to think critically, communicate clearly, and perform effectively in a competitive job market. These competitive events cover job skills in everything from communications to mechanics. Some events allow students to compete as individuals, while others allow them to compete in teams.

The Rumors ARE True!
You CAN in fact raise a pig or a lamb through FFA! This is a great way to have a blast while learning hard work, commitment, responsibility, meet a ton of new people, and even make some money! Pig projects start in November/December, and lambs come in January, then will be raised by you and shown & sold at either the Spring Fair in April, or the Puget Sound show in June!
