                                            Postmarked Date Due - July 15
The National Chapter award program is designed to award those FFA chapters who actively implement the Mission
and Strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using a program of activities that
emphasizes student, chapter and community development. Quality standards have been developed in each area as
minimum requirements for recognition in the Superior/National Chapter Award program. The FFA Mission and
Strategies should be used as a guide in planning, implementing and assessing accomplishments.
Division I - Student Development
The purpose of this division is to encourage the chapter to develop individual and cooperative activities that will
enhance students' life skills.
1. Leadership activities that help the individual develop technical, human relations and decision-making
   leadership skills to enhance personal success. (Examples include leadership conferences, public speaking
   experiences, team demonstrations, team and individual leadership competitions, volunteerism, international
   student hosts, Made For Excellence, Washington Leadership Conference and state and national conventions.)

2. Healthy lifestyle activities that promote the well-being and self-esteem of the student, either mentally or
   physically. (Examples include drug and alcohol prevention and education, personal safety, personal image
   projection and recreation/leisure activities.)

3. Supervised agricultural experience activities that promote student involvement and growth through agriculture-
   related experience and/or entrepreneurship. (Examples include Agricultural Proficiency awards, member
   degrees, tours, Work Experience Abroad, guest speakers, record keeping and fair exhibits.)

4. Scholarship activities that develop a positive attitude toward lifelong learning experiences. (Examples include
   scholarship awards, tutoring, school and college tours, FFA scholarships, leadership conference scholarships,
   study-skills seminars for members and chapter/school honor roll.)

5. Agricultural career skills activities that develop agricultural occupation and career skills through a progressive
   learning environment. (Examples include career day, guest speakers, shadow experiences, agricultural skills
   and judging events, agriscience fairs, computer literacy activities, mentor programs and international
   seminars and tours.)
Division II - Chapter Development
The FFA chapter has a responsibility to provide opportunities and services to its members. The chapter
responsibilities may be met by promoting increased member participation, financial responsibility, a positive image,
interactions with support groups and cooperation through organized activities.

1. Recruitment activities conducted to increase agricultural education enrollment and/or FFA membership and
   encourage greater participation. (Examples include career class visits, agricultural demonstrations, visits to
   lower grades, program information mailings, petting zoos, member barbecues, National FFA Week exhibits,
   new member picnics, camping and fishing trips, and complimentary subscriptions to "FFA New Horizons.")

2. Financial activities conducted to encourage thrift and good financial management among members through
   earnings, savings and investments. (Examples include developing chapter budgets, applying for loans,
   livestock chains, top sales prizes, group purchasing programs, chapter fund raising and equipment
   investments.)




                                                            -A-
3. Public relations activities conducted to promote a positive image and inform students, parents, school officials
   and the community about chapter and member accomplishments. (Examples include newspaper articles,
   chapter scrapbooks, local agricultural television programs, school marquees, member representatives at
   school board meetings, National FFA Week, National Agricultural Week celebrations, chapter newsletters,
   complimentary magazine subscriptions, chapter banquets, parliamentary procedure demonstrations for other
   classes and recognition dinners.)

   committees and members. (Examples include officer training workshops, state and national leadership
   workshops, committee chairperson training, executive committee planning, presenting officer and committee
   chairperson service pins, chapter officer leadership retreats and workshops for new members on conducting
   meetings.)
5. Support group activities conducted to develop and maintain positive relations among the FFA, parents,
   community leaders and industry. (Examples include FFA Alumni, agriculture boosters, Young Farmers, Farm
   Bureau, Grange, chamber of commerce, service clubs, Extension, fair boards, parent-teacher organization
   participation, open houses, FFA/agricultural industry community tours, Community in the Classroom and
   guest speakers)
Division III - Community Development
FFA can develop partnerships with other groups and organizations while taking a leadership role to make the
community a better place to live and work. Using state, national and international activities, a chapter and its
members can serve as catalysts to improve the community's economic, environmental and human resources.
1. Economic activities conducted to improve the economic welfare of the community. (Examples include
   creation of jobs, member entrepreneurship, enhanced tourism, international development, historical
   preservation and community relations.)
2. Environmental activities conducted to preserve natural resources and develop more environmentally
   responsible individuals. (Examples include urban and rural conservation programs, water and air quality
   programs, producer and consumer safety programs, hunter and firearm safety programs, and recycling
   programs.)
3. Human resources activities conducted to improve the welfare and well being of members and citizens of the
   community. (Examples include PALS - Partners in Active Learning Support - special populations involvement,
   at-risk programs, cultural awareness and diversity programs, food drives and personal safety programs.)
4. Citizenship activities conducted to encourage members to become active, involved citizens of their school,
   community and country. (Examples include volunteerism, community service, civic duties, internships with
   government agencies, legislative breakfasts, work with local chamber of commerce and networking with
   governmental agencies.)
5. Agricultural awareness activities conducted to help the public become better informed about the food system
   and related agricultural issues. (Examples include Food For America, Agriculture in the Classroom,
   agricultural literacy, agricultural safety, ATV safety, National Agricultural Day activities and student/parent
   orientations.)
