THE FFA VISION
THE FFA VISION
Students whose lives are impacted by FFA and agricultural education will achieve academic and personal growth, strengthen American agriculture and provide leadership to build healthy local communities, a strong nation and a sustainable world.
Missouri FFA is 25,920 members strong —and growing! FFA continues to help the next generation rise up to meet the challenges of feeding a growing population by helping its members to develop their own unique talents and explore their interests in a broad range of career pathways through their experiences in agricultural education. Today’s FFA members are future biologists, chemists, veterinarians, engineers and entrepreneurs! Thanks for helping us pave the way to being tomorrow’s leaders.

JEFFERSON CITY, MO. – The 2018 Drive to Feed Kids officially kicks off today. The goal for this collaboration is to raise funds to provide food for hungry Missouri children, pack 100,000 nutritious, kid-friendly meals at the Missouri State Fair and to stand in the gap for the Missouri children who face food insecurity.
The Missouri State FFA officer team presents the “Living to Serve Network” again this year.
Sixty-six FFA members from across the state participated in the Missouri FFA Public Speaking Academy held June 5-7, 2018 on the University of Central Missouri campus.
The Missouri FFA, along with Case IH, made it possible for FFA members to benefit from the professional staff at University of Central Missouri.
Your Missouri State FFA officers have spent the past few months working on presentations and would love to meet with your chapter! Find out which officers are available in your area.

I believe that this organization offers each member the opportunity to succeed and belong. Regardless of their background or ability, I hope to encourage members to find something they can excel at in the FFA. I was able to find a community and discover my potential through the blue jacket and I know that every member can do the same.

FFA members motivate me to be my best on every day. Their passion and care for others has the power to brighten the darkest of days.

We do not gain experience or skills by not participating or challenging ourselves. Find something you are passionate about and run with it. That is how progress is made. Passionate people push industries.
- Abby Turner, Vice President
Here in Missouri FFA, if we share our love for our industry, our commitment to cultivating a bright future and the experiences within our organization that have impacted us for the better, we will continue to blaze a clear path for our and the future generations. It’s on us.
