As stated in the FFA/4-H Statement of Relations, a student is eligible to participate in both FFA and 4-H simultaneously. However, a student is not allowed to participate in activities considered “same” to both groups in the same “project year.” The Statement of Relations defines the “project year” as July 1 to June 30. The Statement says that annually the State FFA Advisor and State 4-H Leader will meet and announce the list of activities considered “same” for the coming year. The following activities have been announced as “same” by the State FFA Advisor and State 4-H Leader. Wildlife Management (judging) has been added, otherwise, this list is exactly the same as it has been the past two years.


-Dairy Cattle Evaluation (judging)

-Forestry (judging or field day)

-Horse Evaluation (judging)

-Land Evaluation (judging)

-Livestock Evaluation (judging)

-Poultry Evaluation (judging)

-Wildlife Management (judging)

-Animal show events: steer, heifer, lamb, breeding ewe, market barrow, market gilt, breeding hog, goat, and dairy


These activities will be posted on the Georgia AgEd website along with the Statement of Relations by the end of the week. The Statement of Relations can also be found on the Georgia FFA website on the FFA information page.


If you have questions about the Statement of Relations, any of the above activities, or 4-H/FFA partnership, please do not hesitate to contact me.   – Ben
