Future Farmers of America
In 1928, 33 farm boys met in a Kansas City hotel to discuss the future of farming in America. Known as the Future Farmers of America, the organization they founded provided support for agricultural education and leadership training for high school students. 
 
After granting charters in 48 states across the U.S., the National FFA Foundation was established in 1944. Four years later, the FFA participated in an international exchange program with the Young Farmers Club of Great Britain. Today, the FFA sends more than 350 students to 25 countries annually to share knowledge and promote agricultural careers.
 

Future Farmers Of America Stamp

On October 13, 1953, the U.S. Post Office issued a 3¢ stamp honoring the 25th anniversary of the Future Farmers of America. It was issued at the place the organization was founded – Kansas City, Missouri.

The stamp pictures a future farmer, wearing a jacket with the organization’s emblem, standing before a farm with rolling hills in the distance.

The Smith-Hughes Vocational Education Act was passed in 1917 to give federal funds to states for high school classes in certain vocations – agriculture, family and consumer sciences, trades, and industries. Just a few years later, in the early 1920s, Virginia created a Future Farmers of Virginia Club for the boys in those agriculture classes. Over time, other states created their own Future Farmer organizations.

As more of these state groups were formed, they realized the next step would be to create a national organization. So in 1928, a group of these agriculture students met in Kansas City, Missouri for the third annual National Congress of Vocational Agriculture Students.   During that convention, on November 20, thirty-three of the students from 18 states met at the Baltimore Hotel in Kansas City and officially formed the Future Farmers of America.

Also known as the FFA, the organization they founded provided support for agricultural education and leadership training for high school students. After granting charters in 48 states across the U.S., the National FFA Foundation was established in 1944.

Four years later, the FFA participated in an international exchange program with the Young Farmers Club of Great Britain. Today, the FFA sends more than 350 students to 25 countries annually to share knowledge and promote agricultural careers.
