Congratulations, 2012 American Degree Recipients!

We’ve just announced our 2012 American FFA Degree recipients!

The American FFA Degree is awarded to FFA members who have demonstrated the highest level of commitment to FFA and made significant accomplishments in their Supervised Agricultural Experiences (SAEs).

Approximately 3,500 American FFA Degrees are handed out each year at the National FFA Convention. That number represents less than half of one percent of all FFA members, making it one of the organization’s highest honors.

If you can’t make it to convention this year, you can watch the American FFA Degree ceremony live on RFD-TV  on Saturday, Oct. 22 at 7:45 a.m. Eastern.

A special thanks goes out to the sponsors of the American FFA Degree program, Alltech Inc.; Case IH; Elanco; Farm Credit; Pioneer Hi-Bred, A DuPont Business; and Syngenta.

Congratulations to all of this year’s recipients on your outstanding accomplishments!
