As the highest degree achievable in the National FFA Organization, the American FFA Degree shows an FFA member’s dedication to his or her chapter and State FFA Association.

It demonstrates the effort FFA members apply toward their supervised agricultural experience, outstanding leadership abilities, and community involvement they exhibited through their FFA careers.

American FFA Degree recipients show promise for the future and have gone above and beyond to achieve excellence.

To be eligible to receive the American FFA Degree, members must meet qualifications such as receiving a State FFA Degree, holding active membership for the past three years, completing secondary instruction in an agricultural education program, and operating an outstanding supervised agricultural experience program.

Community service, leadership abilities, and outstanding scholastic achievement are also required.

American FFA Degree candidates will be honored at the 96th National FFA Convention & Expo on November 4th, 2023, in Indianapolis, Indiana.
