FFA Creed
Since 1930, The FFA Creed has become vital words for all FFA members. FFA members who compete in the Creed CDE don't just say the Creed, but they tell the story of the FFA. The contest consists of reciting the FFA Creed in front of a panel of judges and then answering questions about the FFA Creed. This contest is only open to freshmen FFA members. Members who compete gain public speaking skills, interviewing skills, and self-confidence.

The contest has 4 levels: district, regional, state, and national. Top 2 district winners advance to the regional. Top 2 regional winners advance to the state. State winner advances to national.
The district CDE is held in November. The regional CDE is held in late January. The state CDE is held at State FFA Convention in March.


The FFA Creed, by E.M. Tiffany:

I believe in the future of agriculture, with a faith born not of words but of deeds - achievements won by the present and past generations of agriculturists; in the promise of better days through better ways, even as the better things we now enjoy have come to us from the struggles of former years.

I believe that to live and work on a good farm, or to be engaged in other agricultural pursuits, is pleasant as well as challenging; for I know the joys and discomforts of agricultural life and hold an inborn fondness for those associations which, even in hours of discouragement, I cannot deny.

I believe in leadership from ourselves and respect from others. I believe in my own ability to work efficiently and think clearly, with such knowledge and skill as I can secure, and in the ability of progressive agriculturists to serve our own and the public interest in producing and marketing the product of our toil.

I believe in less dependence on begging and more power in bargaining; in the life abundant and enough honest wealth to help make it so--for others as well as myself; in less need for charity and more of it when needed; in being happy myself and playing square with those whose happiness depends upon me.

I believe that American agriculture can and will hold true to the best traditions of our national life and that I can exert an influence in my home and community which will stand solid for my part in that inspiring task.
