INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — 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.

 46 Kansas FFA Members earned this honor and were recognized on Saturday, October 27. Congratulations!
