American Degree Requirement Change – Effective 2011 application process:

A change in the American Degree requirements will be implemented with the 2011 application process.
Start preparing your students now.  The community service hours’ requirement will change at the Chapter, State and National level.

Chapter FFA Degree the following requirement:
Have participated in at least 10 hours of community service activities. These hours are in addition to and cannot be duplicated as paid or unpaid SAE hours.

State FFA Degree the following requirement:
Have participated in at least 25 hours within at least two different community service activities.

( NOTE: 15 more than Chapter Degree). These hours are in addition to and cannot be duplicated as paid or unpaid SAE hours

·American FFA Degree the following requirements:
     - Have a record of outstanding leadership activities;
     - Have participated in at least 50 hours in at least three different community

       duplicated as paid or unpaid SAE hours; and
     - Have achieved a high school scholastic record of “C” or better, as certified by the principal
