From communications to mechanics to livestock judging, 25 career and leadership development (CDE and LDE) events help FFA members complete as individuals and in teams to sharpen their leadership skills and agricultural knowledge.

The National Chapter Award Program is designed to recognize FFA chapters that actively implement the mission and strategies of the organization. These chapters improve chapter operations using the National Quality Chapter Standards (NQCS) and a Program of Activities (POA) that emphasize growing leaders, building communities and strengthening agriculture. Chapters are rewarded for providing educational experiences for the entire membership.
Ten Missouri FFA members have been selected as national finalists in their respective proficiency award areas and will be honored during the National FFA Convention Oct. 25-28 in Indianapolis.
Missouri FFA is honored this year with 13 finalists in the National FFA Agriscience Fair, which recognizes student researchers studying the application of agricultural scientific principles and emerging technologies in agricultural enterprises. The agriscience fair is for middle and high school students. Participation begins at the local level and progresses to state and national levels.
