National Chapter Award
The National Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters that successfully complete an annual Program of Activities (POA), which includes a series of activities designed to encourage its members to grow as individuals, to work as part of a team and to serve others. The POA is built around three major areas called divisions. Divisions focus on the types of activities a chapter conducts. The three divisions include: Growing Leaders, Building Communities and Strengthening Agriculture. Recognition is available at the state and national levels.
