Star Award Finalists      
Each of the 6 regions in the California FFA Association can submit a Regional Winner in each of the four categories. The Regional Winners are considered the State Finalist in Star Award Program.

The 6 State Finalists in each area submit their final Star Application to the California State FFA Association along with their California FFA Official Recordbooks. The Application and Recordbooks are evaluated and scored in the Spring during the State Proficiency Judging Schedule. The finalists are also contacted by the California State FFA Officer team to schedule an on site interview and project visit. The combined interview score, recordbook score, and application score is used to determine the State Star in each of the four areas.

Outlined in the California FFA Association Constitution

Section D. State FFA Degree: Article 13
There shall be four annual awards for the State FFA Degree recipients known as the California Star Farmer, California Star in Agribusiness, California Star in Agricultural Placement, and the California Star in Agriscience.

A member who has received the State FFA Degree may apply for Star consideration at all levels provided he/she:

(a) is a Junior, Senior, or first year Graduate,
(b) is an active FFA member in good standing at the time of application, and
(c) has an ongoing supervised occupational experience program which has been continuously under the supervision of the local agriculture instructor.

Selection of the sectional and regional Stars will be selected in each region. The California Star finalist shall be based on the Regional Star Winners in each region. The California Stars will then be evaluated and decided on three criteria: FFA Record book Score, State FFA Star Application Score, and Interview Score.

In any given year a student may only apply and be considered for Star honors under one Star category.
