Each year approximately 4,000 FFA members and guests from across the state gather to learn about careers in the agriculture industry, compete in various events, and shape the future of the Iowa FFA Association.

College Community Schools launched the Prairie Agriculture and FFA program this fall with exploratory courses being offered to students at Prairie Point Middle School and an Introduction to Ag course to students at Prairie High School. Expanded course offerings are being planned as the program develops and grows.
