Career and Leadership Challenges

National FFA Members in Classroom

New for 2020, Career and Leadership Challenges are designed for the individual member to explore, create, and have fun while they compete using skills in the areas of agriculture, food, and natural resources. Challenges are not a replacement for Career and Leadership Development Events, but they will complement them. These challenges are designed to be student-led. Top entries will be publicly recognized, and throughout the challenges, members can win FFA swag.
