Elementary FFA program applications due by June 30

Georgia school systems interested in implementing a pilot program for elementary agricultural education have until June 30 to submit their applications.

The pilot program, authorized under Senate Bill 330 passed unanimously by the Georgia Legislature this year, will take the FFA education model into a minimum of six elementary schools. The state’s FFA program has 42,000 student members from middle schools and high schools around the state. The elementary school pilot program will last three years and will help determine whether and how elementary agriculture education can be implemented statewide.

The application can be found online at
