Winnisquam Ag Students Attend Leadership Camp

TILTON —  Seven motivated members of the Winnisquam FFA Chapter spent the weekend of January 17 at the annual NH FFA Winter Leadership Camp, where they improved their skills as young leaders, met other FFA members from around the state and participated in social activities. In all, 59 students of agricultural education engaged in the event.

Campers participated in workshops on subjects such as diversity, ethics and goal setting. The seminar was led by Corey Flournoy, a former National FFA President and founding partner of Creative Outreach, a diversity and motivational consulting group. Assisting Flournoy were the six NH FFA State Officers, teens from across the state elected to leadership positions by their peers.
NH FFA Leadership Camp has been held annually for more than 15 years, and remains one of the organization's most popular activities. It is funded in part by the NH FFA Foundation, with participants paying only a portion of the cost to attend. The event is held at the Brookwoods Conference Center in Alton, on the shores of Lake Winnipesaukee. While at the event, the students meet and interact with other teens from some of New Hampshire's 16 agricultural education programs, staying in heated cabins and sharing meals, workshops and recreational activities.

The FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America) is a national organization of nearly 580,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. The organization has 7,570 chapters located throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. FFA's mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
