The National FFA Organization is a form of youth organization known as a Career and Technical Student Organization based on high school classes that promote and support agricultural education. The organization, founded in 1928 as Future Farmers of America, now claims over 490,000 members. FFA was originally an acronym for Future Farmers of America but in 1988 the association, in an effort to broaden its potential membership beyond youth working in modern American agriculture, changed the name of the organization from Future Farmers of America to National FFA Organization and is still commonly referred to as FFA. High school students compete in various competitions in two major areas-career development events (CDE's) and supervised agricultural experiences (SAE's). CDE's consist of competitions aimed toward skills in a certain career area from agricultural marketing, meat, livestock, and dairy judging to food science and agricultural communications. An SAE program involves hands-on application of concepts and principles learned in the agricultural education classroom. Students are supervised by agricultural education teachers in cooperation with parents, employers and other adults who assist them in the development and achievement of their educational and career goals. SAE programs fall into four different areas: Exploratory (learning about the 'big picture' of agriculture and its many related careers), Research/Experimentation and Analysis (conducting research or analyze information to discover new knowledge), Ownership/Entrepreneurship (planning and operate an agriculture-related business), or Placement (working for someone else either for pay or for the experience). ...more on Wikipedia about "National FFA Organization"
