American Degree Recipients

The American Degree is the highest degree that a FFA member can achieve in the FFA association. 

 

The American FFA Degree is awarded at the National FFA Convention & Expo each year to less than 1% of FFA members making it one of the organization’s highest honors. In addition to their degree, 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. The current year’s list of approved American FFA Degree Recipients are announced in August each year.
