Ag Teacher Hack

Getting ready for National FFA Convention?
Check out the FFA Advisor's Trading Post

The trading post has two sheets (located at the bottom), one that is used for items needed and one that is used for offering to sell. Additionally, each one has a color coded system used to highlight items that are pending approval or have already been sold. Please use this system correctly to avoid confusion. Follow this link to access the Trading Post.

Thank you Riley Hintzsche, agriculture teacher at Streator Township High School, Illinois for the information!

This idea was posted on the  Ag Education Discussion Lab Facebook page.
