The Georgia FFA Association is proud to offer a wonderful opportunity for
middle school agriculture students. The 2014 FFA Day at the Fair Middle
School Program will be held on *Tuesday, October 7*, in Reaves Arena at the
Georgia National Fairgrounds in conjunction with the Georgia National Fair
in Perry. This activity targets agricultural education students and FFA
members in *grades 6-9* and is designed to offer an interactive look at
what agricultural education and the FFA have to offer.

The objectives of the FFA Day program are:

   - to allow students to develop interpersonal skills in teamwork,
   communications, human relations, and social interaction,
   - to help students recognize the scope of the FFA and its role as a
   vital component of the agricultural education program,
   - to introduce educational course offerings within agriscience and
   agricultural education, &
   - to increase awareness of the global importance of agriculture and
   natural resources.
