Olympia FFA celebrated National FFA Week on February 24th through
the 28th. They took time throughout the week through assemblies and
activities to tell Olympia High School students what FFA is and the
opportunities it creates for the members. The chapter’s officers
planned a wide variety of activities for students to participate in
throughout the week, ranging from dress up days to team relays.
Throughout the week the dress up days included American day, Red
(Case IH) or Green (John Deere) day, on the farm day, goin’ huntin’
day, and FFA day. Three classes with the most students who dressed
up throughout the week won an ice cream party for their class. Along
with the ice cream party, the class with the most students who
participated won Pinky’s (ice cream) coupons!

During the assembly there was a pig-calling contest, multiple relays
and competitions, and a group of students were selected to kiss a
pig! Logan Wheeler, a junior at Olympia, won the pig-calling
contest. When asked about the Friday assembly, senior Alyssa Casey
stated, “My favorite thing we did was the pig-calling contest. It
was a good assembly to end my senior FFA week!” A big thank you to
our supporters in the community, Pinky’s in Tremont, Olympia High
School staff, teachers, and all the students who participated in the
