Big Chief FFA hosted Clarke’s FFA Week festivities

The Osceola Big Chief FFA put together FFA Week festivities March 20-27. The FFA officer team held meetings a month in advance to begin preparations. With COVID-19 restrictions things weren’t exactly the same as every year but the officer team worked together to make the week memorable and fun for the high school students.

The week started off with students dressing up for pajama day, Tuesday was beach attire, Wednesday was America themed, Thursday was nerd day (flannel) and Friday was blue and gold day.

Students drove tractors to school where awards for participant, longest drive, best red and best green, and overall beauty award were given out.

Every year during FFA Week there is usually a big teacher appreciation breakfast but this year the officer team had to get creative due to COVID-19 restrictions. The officer team walked to each classroom and delivered donuts and muffins. To support local business the officer team decided to get the teacher’s muffins from Mayberry’s Coffee House and Eatery.

There was an opportunity for all students to get involved during an assembly where they could play an obstacle course style game of “knock out” in the gym on Friday to wrap up the week of festivities.

The goal of FFA week each year is to share what FFA is and the impact it has not only on its members but on the larger community and youth in agriculture.
