FFA is an intra-curricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. FFA is one of the three components of agricultural education. The FFA has the unique characteristic of binding the agriculture program together and serving as the catalyst to advance the student more rapidly toward success.

The Agriculture Science and Technology Academy Program is widely regarded as one of the most successful programs in the Nation. ASTA FFA has won countless district and area championships along with holding 35 State Championships and 17 National Gold Emblem Championships in its 20 + year history.

If you would like more information about becoming a part of this extraordinary program you may contact Pamela Zablocki or Bryan Hawkins.

Our FFA and school encourage team involvement on a CDE or LDE team. Here is a bit of information about those types of teams. 

 What are LDEs?

Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking,
decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization.
Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.
All LDE events have elimination rounds at the district and area before the state level competition.
Please refer to your district and area calendars for competition dates.

What are CDEs?
Career Development Events build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. These events are designed to help a member prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student's technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter. CDEs answer the question, 

"When will I use this knowledge in the real world?"
