  • Strengthens the confidence of agriculture students in themselves and their work.
  • Promotes the intelligent choice and establishment of an agricultural career.
  • Encourages achievement in supervised agricultural experience programs.
  • Encourages wise management of economic, environmental and human resources of the community.
  • Develops interpersonal skills in teamwork, communications, human relations and social interaction.
  • Builds character and promotes citizenship, volunteerism and patriotism.
  • Promotes cooperation and cooperative attitudes among all people.
  • Promotes healthy lifestyles.
  • Encourages excellence in scholarship.

FFA develops members’ potential and helps them discover their talent through hands-on experiences, which give members the tools to achieve real-world success.

Smackover FFA is an Agriculture Education Leadership and Curriculum program. This program is designed to allow every student enrolled in an Agricultural Education class to have full access to everything the organization has to offer. Inclusion of these students who might otherwise not have the chance to enjoy these activities will only serve to strengthen the nation’s largest youth organization.  Smackover FFA participates in many different activities year round including:

  • Livestock Showteam
  • Shooting Sports
  • Career Development Events
  • Leadership Development Events
  • AgriScience Fair
  • Agricultural Mechanic Shows
  • Summer Camps
  • Leadership Conferences
  • Arkansas State FFA Convention
  • World Food Prize

Members are future farmers, chemists, veterinarians, government officials, entrepreneurs, bankers, international business leaders, teachers and premier professionals in many career fields.

FFA is an intracurricular student organization for those interested in agriculture and leadership. It is one of the three components of agricultural education.

The official name of the organization is the National FFA Organization. The letters “FFA” stand for Future Farmers of America. These letters are a part of our history and our heritage that will never change.
