2016 American FFA Degree Ceremony

October 22, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn (RFD-TV) This year’s recipients of the prestigious American FFA Degree walked across the stage at the 89th National FFA Convention in Indianapolis to receive their hard-earned recognition.

Fewer than 1% of FFA Members qualify for the American Degree, making it the one of the highest honors bestowed by the organization. In addition to minimum requirements for grades and participation within the FFA organization, the rigorous application process also mandates that would-be recipients demonstrate substantial experience within the agricultural industry, amounting to thousands of dollars earned and productively invested and/or thousands of hours worked.
