Thank you for making a difference.

FFA relies on the support of exceptional teachers, individuals and companies to provide life-changing experiences for its members.

Each year, at the National FFA Convention & Expo, those who have made outstanding contributions to FFA are honored with Distinguished Service Citations, VIP awards or the Honorary American FFA Degree.


Individuals who have provided exceptional service on a national level to agriculture, agricultural education, or FFA are eligible for the Honorary American FFA Degree. Additionally, teachers who have created high-quality agricultural education programs which inspire and motivate their students to strive for success are eligible. Nominations are first submitted to the individual’s state FFA association for approval.

The Distinguished Service Citation honors organizations, agencies, businesses or other groups who have made outstanding contributions to FFA and agricultural education on a national level.

State FFA Associations can nominate businesses and organizations for this award.
