Proficiency Awards

Proficiency Awards 

Agricultural Proficiency Awards honor FFA members who, through supervised agricultural experiences, have developed specialized skills that they can apply toward their future careers. Nationally, students can compete for awards in nearly 50 areas ranging from agricultural communications to wildlife management  

Proficiency Award Areas

Entrepreneurship: Supervised Agricultural Experiences related to the ownership of an agribusiness or agriculture-related enterprise. The member plans, implements, operates and assumes financial risks of ownership. 

Placement: Supervised agricultural experiences that include non-ownership, agriculturally-related paid or unpaid employment and/or volunteer work. 

Combined: Award area for supervised agricultural experiences that are not split between entrepreneurship or placement. Applicants can combine both placement and entrepreneurship records if both are included in the SAE. 

Agriscience Research: Supervised agricultural experiences that involve planning and conducting an agriculturally based scientific experiment based on hypothesis and the use of the scientific methods of investigation on the hypothesis.
