Ag Literacy & Advocacy

The National FFA Agricultural Literacy and Advocacy Platform spans programs, initiatives, and award areas across the organization. For example, state FFA officers attending the State Officer Summit become literate in agricultural education, agriculture, and FFA and then advocate for their causes in our Nation’s Capital; students competing in the Ag Issues Career Development Event study and research a current event in agriculture and then present and debate all sides of the issue; and chapters applying for the National Chapter Award must answer how they advocate in their communities. Through programs like these and the four-step effective advocacy model, National FFA is providing a suite of skills to create a healthier understanding and dialogue about food and agriculture across the world.
