FFA Blue Room Mission

The future of agriculture depends on us. We must feed the world, improve lives and respect our planet. Technological advancement is essential. Cutting-edge thinking is mandatory.

The FFA Blue Room exposes students to the careers of the future, equips chapters with new resources, and inspires us to find innovative solutions to tomorrow’s challenges as part of FFA Blue 365.
