This program is designed to identify and recognize FFA Alumni members for their leadership and outstanding service to agricultural education, FFA and the FFA Alumni. All members of the Georgia FFA Alumni are eligible for this recognition. Applications should be submitted using the official application form.

The Georgia FFA Alumni Outstanding Achievement Award shall be presented annually to not more than three persons. A plaque or certificate shall be presented at the annual meeting. The Contest and Awards Committee of the Georgia FFA Alumni Council shall select the recipients from the applications received.

  • The individual shall have gone beyond the call of duty to make significant contributions to agricultural education, FFA, and the FFA Alumni.
  • A significant situation, institution of action shall have been charged for the better because of the individuals personal participation.
  • The individual must be a member and actively involved in an FFA Alumni program of activities.

Each state may submit to the National Association, each year, at least one local affiliate report or 20%, which ever is greater of those affiliates submitting applications for state consideration. The application shall cover any twelve month period.
