The Mt. Everett FFA Horse judging team won the Massachusetts state horse judging competition in May 2014. This win qualified our team to attend and compete at the National FFA Convention in Louisville, KY in October 2014. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and is sure to be an amazing experience for our members. They will be representing Southern Berkshire Regional School District, Massachusetts and also showing what one of the smallest FFA chapters in the country can do with dedication and hard work.

While our FFA does have fundraisers scheduled for the upcoming school year, we are in need of generous sponsors to help send these FFA members to the National FFA Convention.

Sponsors who donate $100+ can have their name or business logo included on our FFA t-shirts, brochures, and website.

The National FFA Organization has over 500,000 members across the United States and is considered to be the premier youth leadership organization in the country. The FFA Organization is a positive example of what works in education. This dynamic youth organization changes students’ lives through preparation for premier leadership, personal growth and career success. FFA is an integral part of a quality Agriculture Education program.

The Mt. Everett FFA is a growing chapter with a group of highly motivated students. Students plan and implement chapter activities including community service projects, agricultural competitions, leadership workshops, career development events, field trips, and other educational opportunities.

Our FFA Chapter is an intra-curricular program that completes a three part model of education: classroom instruction, FFA, and SAE projects. We currently offer agriculture courses that focus on Animal Science. We have a school barn that is home to a flock of Shropshire sheep and rescued alpaca’s. Students are responsible for all aspects of their care. Classroom instruction is further applied to hands on opportunities called supervised agricultural experiences (SAE). SAE programs consist of planned practical activities conducted outside of class time in which students develop and apply agricultural knowledge and skills. These projects connect agriculture students with local farms and agribusinesses for a “learning by doing” work experience.

Mt. Everett FFA students are future veterinarians, scientists, entrepreneurs, and professionals in numerous other careers. The skills instilled in FFA members serve them well throughout their lives, regardless of the individual career path. FFA members are proud citizens and demonstrate a strong work ethic. They are appreciative of the agriculture industry and become advocates within their community.
