Project 2028 – A Celebration of Kansas FFA History
Kansas FFA has a rich and deep history, which we are seeking to celebrate as we quickly approach the 100th Anniversary milestone of this agricultural leadership youth organization. The preservation of this organization’s legacy and stories is the critical mission of Project 2028. It is through our shared history that we will uncover the path to a greater future. There are countless ways we can all help in this endeavor, find out below where you can contribute in this cause!
