It’s a record!

The National FFA Board of Directors have approved the 2018 American FFA Degree recipients, and a record number are receiving the distinguished honor this fall. Only FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experiences are eligible for the American FFA Degree.

At the 2018 National FFA Convention & Expo, a record 4,255 FFA members will be recognized on-stage as American FFA Degree recipients.

The American FFA Degree is awarded at the National FFA Convention & Expo each year to less than one percent of FFA members, making it one of the organization’s highest honors. Requirements to earn the honor are lengthy.

In addition to their degree certificate, each recipient receives a gold American FFA Degree key.

The top American FFA Degree recipients from each state may also be nominated for an American Star Award. Finalists for American Star Awards were announced in July.

The American FFA Degree program is proudly supported by Case IH, Elanco and Syngenta.
