The American FFA Degree is the highest degree achievable in the national FFA organization—the gold standard.
As the highest degree achievable in the National FFA Organization, the American FFA Degree shows an FFA member’s dedication to their chapter and state FFA association. It demonstrates the effort FFA members apply toward their supervised agricultural experience and the 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.
