Several of you have asked questions about the State FFA Degree and State Star Battery. Those two applications DID NOT change along with the national applications this year. The Georgia State FFA Degree and State Star Battery are Excel files that should be downloaded from the Applications page on the Georgia FFA website (www.georgiaffa.org). For your convenience, copies of the State FFA Degree and Star Battery applications are also attached to this email.

Chapters that subscribe to and use the AET recordkeeping system can generate a Georgia State FFA Degree through their AET account. However, those chapters must still access the Star Battery from the Georgia FFA site.


Please DO NOT try to complete a State FFA Degree or Star Battery through the Ag Career Network /MyFFA site.

If you have a student who will be applying for the State FFA Degree this year who has an outstanding SAE and may be worthy of being a Star finalist, I encourage you to have that student complete the Star Battery along with their State Degree application. The only way that a student can be considered for a Star award is to complete and submit a Star Battery form with their State Degree application.

State Degree and Star batteries are due to the Region offices on Friday, February 27. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call or email me.
