Where is your FFA Emblem?
Since 1928, the FFA emblem has been the symbol of our organization. The emblem is the most iconic of all our FFA symbols. It combines 6 smaller items, the FFA initials, and the message of "agricultural education" into an icon that stands for everything our organization hopes to accomplish!
In a different light, the FFA emblem also represents the "Brand" known as the FFA! Just like a logo on a soda bottle, pick up truck, or computer, the FFA emblem builds recognition. Think about the computer company with the fruit logo.....how many times a day do you see that? Emblems and logos share a visual shorthand with the world. If a picture says one thousand words, than a good emblem says one million!
What we want to do with this project is get the FFA emblem in more places. There are many ways the FFA emblem is out there and more ways still to share it. If you are willing to help, we want you to get that emblem in a place where more people can see it. Send us the photos of where you see the FFA emblem so we can share it with the the world. Is it on the side of a barn? on your car? A belt buckle? We want to see it! All FFA members, alumni, and supporters are welcome to send photos to firstname.lastname@example.org . Include a description of where you saw the emblem in the email!
Why is this important for the New York FFA Foundation? As a state level foundation in the FFA organization, Its difficult for states to compete with the National FFA for fundraising. They have the infrastructure to chase the biggest corporations and organizations. So, we are using a few internet tricks to draw in your attention. If you are in a position to support the FFA, I encourage you to think local or at least to the state level. We are doing great things in New York.. With us, your money gets to the "grassroots" of the FFA.
