Welcome to the Idaho FFA Blog!

Welcome to the Idaho FFA Blog

Gretchen Hansten, Idaho FFA President

November 15, 2016

We are excited to kick-off the blog with a post from each of the state officers, and then the blog will be updated weekly with posts from FFA members (this means YOU!), our supporters in FFA Alumni and the FFA Foundation, teachers, and other partners! This is YOUR OPPORTUNITY to let the world know about the incredible activities and service projects your FFA chapters are completing. It’s time to share the “Idaho FFA Members’ Perspectives!” We’d like to challenge the authors of the posts to include how the chapter or member is “climbing to their full potential” to incorporate this year’s theme, which is Climb. All of the blog posts can be submitted to our Executive Director, Mrs. Clara-Leigh Evans, at clevans@uidaho.edu for state officer and state staff review and posting.

Be sure to include:

1.     title to the post

2.     author’s name

3.     FFA chapter

4.     submission date

5.     up to five photos


Submit blog entries and photos to:


Please keep all post submissions positive, school appropriate, and FFA-inspired! I am excited to see what each chapter submits and hear the wonderful stories of Idaho FFA members! We will also be using these submissions as a way to create the “What’s happening in Idaho FFA?” submissions to National FFA for the New Horizons Magazine.

Already this fall, my fellow state officers and I have met several FFA members who are continuing to CLIMB towards their wildest dreams and harness their full potential. My challenge to each of you is to find a story to share and submit about how you make the climb everyday! 

Keep Climbing,
