The revised FFA award and CDE guidelines for the 2012-2013 school year have been uploaded to the Georgia FFA Award Bulletin. You can review the Award Bulletin online by going to the Georgia FFA website (www.georgiaffa.org) and selecting the Award Guidelines link on the left side menu bar; or you can log on to the Georgia AgEd website (www.gaaged.org) and click on the Award Bulletin link on the left side menu bar.


The changes vary from scoring, ID lists, number of classes, etc…You should notice that changes are clearly marked with a "NEW" tag in each set of guidelines.


As you go online to find the guidelines, please be aware that some of the outdated material is still being taken down. When you look, if you see two sets of guidelines for the same activity, please be sure to download the guidelines that were revised in 2012.
