Snyder FFA was founded on April 4th, 1930 and was the second chartered FFA chapter in the state of Texas.  Since then, Snyder FFA has long been held as a competitive, successful, and influential program.  The Snyder FFA program prepares students for career success through agricultural education. The FFA has many opportunities to build relationships, enhance public speaking skills, compete on leadership and judging teams, and pursue scholarships.  There is an opportunity for every student in Snyder FFA.

Leadership Development Events
Leadership Development Events focus on creating situations for members to demonstrate their abilities in public speaking, decision making, communication and their knowledge of agriculture and the FFA organization. Team and individual events are used to reinforce what is taught in agricultural science classrooms.

Career Development Events
Career Development Events build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. These events are designed to help a member prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student's technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter. CDEs answer the question, "When will I use this knowledge in the real world?"

Many CDEs are qualifying events for the National FFA CDE competition and/or offer scholarship opportunities.

Speaking Development Events
Speaking Development Events are designed to develop the ability of all FFA members to express themselves on a given subject. Students are encouraged to develop their communication skills and learn to formulate their remarks for presentation in a variety of situations. The state finals of the speaking development events are held in conjunction with the Texas FFA Convention in July.

The Snyder FFA Ag Farm is located on 208 South approximately 1/2 mile south of Big Country Chevrolet. Any FFA member wishing to conduct an SAE project using this facility is welcome. Please visit with the Agricultural Science Teachers to obtain a Farm contract, keys, and pen/land space.

We have a fully indoor show pig barn, a pole barn for housing sheep/goats/cattle, a smaller barn for sows, and a barn for chickens. The chapter maintains a sheep/goat bumper pull trailer (with AC), a general livestock bumper pull, and a gooseneck trailer for pigs/sheep/goats. We also have a truck bed stock box for goats and baby pigs.

Land is also set aside for vegetable/crop production.
