FFA has an award to match almost any member's interest. Awards and degree programs honor individual students and chapters, as well as community members and those who have rendered outstanding service to our organization.

Agriscience Fair      
The National FFA Agriscience Fair is a competition for FFA members who are interested in the science and technology of agriculture. It is held each year, during the California FFA State Leadership Conference. Students can compete in the national agriscience fair in one of six categories: animal systems; environmental services/natural resources systems; food products and processing systems; plant systems; power, structural and technical systems; or social systems.

The California FFA State Degree is the highest honor awarded to FFA members at the state level who have demonstrated exemplary achievement in their classroom instruction, made significant accomplishments in their supervised agricultural experience and demonstrated their commitment to FFA. Degrees awarded at the local level include: Discovery FFA Degree, Greenhand FFA Degree and Chapter FFA Degree. The American FFA Degree is awarded at the National Convention by the National FFA Organization.

Hall of Chapters      
The Hall of Chapters competition allows chapters to highlight agriculture in their community and statewide. Chapters design a 10' X 10' booth to display during the career show. The winning chapter receives $1,000 to assist in traveling to National FFA Convention represent California in the Hall of States.
