FFA [Future Farmers of America] Achievement Award Program.
Future Farmers of America, Washington, DC.
The Future Farmers of America (FFA) Achievement Award Program is designed to increase the involvement of all students of vocational agriculture in the activities of the Future Farmers of America by offering a realistically attainable level of recognition and motivation for each student. The certificate is awarded to students having satisfactorily completed 80 percent of the skills and tasks in each of these four areas: vocational skills, leadership development, career understanding, and safety practices. A six-point plan for use by teachers involves: (1) developing the necessary checklists, (2) ordering the necessary materials, (3) presenting the achievement award program to the vocational agriculture class, (4) monitoring student progress, (5) presenting the award, and (6) evaluating checklist criteria. The development of the achievement award program is briefly outlined, and sample checklists and order forms for the FFA achievement award are provided. (BP)
