Each year the Minnesota FFA Association selects a theme that each of the 9500 FFA members is encouraged to live their year by. Last year that theme was “We Are,” and the year before that, “Give2Grow.” But what is a theme?
A theme can serve multiple purposes—it guides our actions, sets standards, creates unity within the organization, or can even be a life motto. Although these are all true, this year’s MN State FFA Officers has created the theme as a challenge for the determined and talented FFA members that have so much potential. Now I’m sure you are asking yourself, “What is the theme this year?” The theme is...(drumroll)…
Dare to Do
You are probably thinking, “Dare me to do what?” The cool thing is, that is for YOU to decide. This is YOUR FFA experience and you get to make it as awesome as you want. Dare to Do means to challenge yourself beyond what you think you can do in FFA and in life.
Challenge your limits. For some of us it is competing in a Career Development Event for the first time, for others it is to run for an office, and for still some it means to apply their FFA experience after they hang up their blue corduroy. Dare to Do—what you think you can’t or what you thought you couldn’t, because if you Dare to Do, it will soon be done.
As you go through your first, second, third, or maybe last year as an FFA member, dare yourself to do something more. Know that if you take that extra step Dare to Do you can change your life, your community, and the lives of the people around you. It is all up to you.
What are you going to Dare to Do?
