Proficiency Awards recognize the development of technical knowledge and skills that students develop through their Supervised Agricultural Experience programs. Based on a calendar year of SAE documentation, students may begin applying for this award program during their freshman year through one year after graduation. Student applications compete in over 50 categories at the chapter, district, state and national levels. See the Policies and Procedures Manual for full eligibility and program details.
In addition to completing a Proficiency Award application and mailing to the state office, postmarked by March 1st, all applicants advancing to state must also complete the State Qualifying Proficiency Application Form by March 1st. Please click here to complete the State Qualifying Proficiency Application Form. This form will require indication of potential interview conflicts, indicating if the applicant wishes to be considered for first place, and submitting biographical information which will be read on stage during state convention if selected as first place.
All Proficiency Applications must be completed online using the AET. Visit National FFA's Proficiency Award Page
