From all of us at the Illinois FFA Center, we are wishing you all the very best over the Holiday Season and into the new year.  

Have a GRAND day, a WONDERFUL week, a BLESSED Christmas, a RELAXING Break and an AMAZING new year! 

  1. Notes for American FFA Degree Applicants

The application is locked to AET this year, students can NOT unlink the application to AET.  Students can enter the SAEs annual dollar values  into AET and that will then populate the applications.  They do not need to list any journal experiences, etc. They will need to add the agriculture courses they have been in over the years so that the application properly pulls their membership and in agriculture courses year over correctly.  If they have challenges, please have them attend the webinar:  

The webinar date:

  • Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

The webinar is scheduled to last about an hour.  However there will be time for questions, so the length of the webinar may vary slightly. The webinar is also posted on the channel where all webinars/videos are being posted: https://www.youtube.com/user/ILAgEd/videos
