FFA members can earn degrees as they progress through the phases of their leadership, academic and career skills development. The Discovery, Greenhand, and Chapter FFA Degrees are all earned at the chapter level.
Florida FFA recognizes their top members with a State FFA Degree. The National FFA Organization awards top members from each state with the American FFA Degree.
Approximately 3,500 American FFA Degrees are handed out each year at the National FFA Convention. That number represents less than half of one percent of all FFA members, making it one of the organization’s highest honors. Over 300 State FFA Degrees are awarded at the state convention each year in Florida.
