The Smith-Hughes National Vocational Education Act of 1917 (signed February 23, 1917) was an act of the United States Congress that promoted vocational agriculture to train people "who have entered upon or who are preparing to enter upon the work of the farm," and provided federal funds for this purpose. The Smith-Hughes Act succeeded in expanding vocational education throughout the country. Subsequent federal laws extended and expanded aid for vocational education.
