Overview      
Written by Wisconsin teacher educator and classically educated son of a Kansas farmer, Erwin Milton Tiffany, the FFA Creed is a masterful piece of literature that succinctly states the beliefs of the FFA. The FFA Creed first appeared in 1929 and was adopted as the official creed of the Future Farmers of America by the organization’s delegates to the third National Convention in 1930. The need for a Spanish version of the FFA Creed became apparent when Puerto Rico became a state association in 1932. The ideas conveyed in the five paragraph belief statement transcend geography, language, race or ethnicity. 

In the last census, 29% of Texans indicated that the Spanish language is spoken in their home. Combining statistics from the Texas Data Center and the United States Census Bureau, one can project that between the years 2025 and 2030, more Texans will be Spanish speakers than solely English speakers. This is the marketplace in which today’s Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources students will be leading, serving and building careers. 

In the interest of premier leadership, personal growth and career success, the Texas FFA Association is offering an opportunity for students to compete in a Spanish Version Creed Speaking Event. The Creed delivery and the five-minute question-answer period will be conducted entirely in Spanish.
