Today is National Teach Ag Day
, a day to celebrate school-based agricultural education and to encourage agricultural education advocates, especially current ag educators to share with others the great career opportunities in agricultural education.
Many FFA chapters and state FFA organizations are hosting activities including capitol rallies, special lessons, community activities and much more. On its Facebook page
, the Arkansas FFA Association is posting video testimonials from ag teachers and students around the state. To participate on Twitter, follow @Teach_Ag and use the hashtag: #taglive13.
The Teach Ag Campaign is an initiative of the National Council for Agricultural Education, led by the National Association of Agricultural Educators (NAAE). It is sponsored by the CHS Foundation and CSX as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
