3 Welcome to the Utica FFA Handbook Welcome to the Utica FFA Parent-Student Handbook. You ll notice that it is not just a handbook for the FFA, but for the entire Agriculture Education Program, including Ag Ed Classes, FFA, and Supervised Agricultural Experience these are integral components of the program that really can t be separated. This handbook, should answer any questions you have about our program and all of the opportunities that we have planned for the coming school year. If you have any questions that are not addressed in the handbook, always feel free to contact the FFA Advisor Gina R Neff by phone at (740) or by at Get involved, participate, and have a great year! Program Description The Agricultural Education Program is much more than a class. Classroom instruction gives students the knowledge and skills they need for success in today s world, and students get a chance to practice and apply these knowledge and skills in their Supervised Agricultural Experience Projects (SAE) and through the National FFA Organization. When the three parts are properly integrated, student education is maximized. Students learn important academic, career, technical, and life skills when all types of instruction are used. To make the most of the Agricultural Education Program, all students should participate in FFA and have an SAE project. SAE (Supervised Agricultural Experience) An SAE project is any experience outside of regularly scheduled class time in which the student gains new skills or practices skills in agriculture. Students could hold an ag related job, job shadow an Ag professional, or own any agribusiness enterprise such as an animal or plant project or agriculture service business. Student can also hold a position that is not directly related to agriculture. For example, students could use babysitting, tutoring another student, or doing work around the house as their SAE. The student should select their project based on their career and interests. The type of project is up to the student. Students should have at least one SAE project each year that they are enrolled in the Ag Ed/FFA program. This can be the same or different projects. Students are required to keep records on their SAE projects the records are graded and included in their class grades. See page 4 for more information on SAE. Ag Ed Classes *Introduction to Agriculture, Food, and Natural Resources *Animal Science and Technology *Veterinary Science *Business Management for Agricultural and Environmental Systems Public Law 740 defines SAE and FFA as integral parts of Agricultural Education classes. Students enrolled in Ag Ed Classes will pay a $20 fee for FFA Dues and will be required to have an SAE Project. 3 FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America, now known as the National FFA Organization ). The Utica FFA Chapter offers a multitude of opportunities to get involved in leadership projects, community service, recreation, competitive events, scholarships, and skills development. This handbook explains many of the opportunities available this school year. Students do not have to participate in all FFA activities they can pick the activities that they want to get involved in. All FFA members should plan at minimum to attend all monthly meetings, participate in 1 CDE and the Annual FFA Banquet. The mandatory acitivies for the FFA are the FFA banquet, 1 CDE, and paying their FFA dues. A student s level of involvement and participation in FFA can boost, but will never reduce, a student s grade in Ag Ed Class. However, if a student signs up for an event and doesn t show, consequences will occur.

4 What is SAE? Supervised Agricultural Experience An SAE program is the actual, hands-on application of agricultural skills outside the classroom. Students are supervised by agricultural education teachers, parents, employers and other adults who assist them in the development and achievement of their educational and career goals. If needed, an SAE does not have to ag related, depending on what is available to the student. SAE is a time honored and tested form of work-based learning. An SAE program can be whatever the student wants it to be an agricultural business of his/her own, a job shadowing experience, or placement in a paid or unpaid job using agriculturally-related skills and competencies. It is a program designed cooperatively by the student, advisor and parents. Unpaid Internship Volunteering at an Animal Shelter Landscaping Projects at Home Raising a Garden Some examples of SAE projects: Grocery Store Produce Dept. Restoring a Tractor Raising large or small animals Ag Career Project Household Chores Working for a Lawn Mowing Business Agriscience Fair Project Babysitting Students keep records (including pictures, hours, description of what the member did, monetary records ect. ) for each SAE project, and these records are submitted every 9 weeks to the Ag Ed instructor as part of the Ag Education class grade. These records will be kept on an online system, called the AET (Agriculture Experience Tracker). Livestock-based projects may be entered and exhibited at the county and state fairs, but this is not required. (see individual opportunities for FFA members section) Students are rewarded for successful SAE projects through the FFA s Proficiency Award Program. (See Proficiency Awards section). Students can have SAE s in the area of Exploratory (looking at the big picture of agriculture and researching about it), Entrepreneurship (owning you own business), Research (scientific research), or Placement (working for someone else). SAE s are also one component of selection to the various levels of FFA membership, also known as Degrees. (See Degrees of Membership Section) FFA Participation FFA is an INTRA-curricular activity - not extracurricular like football, Spanish club, or drama. This means that it is a part of the class you are taking and that you are expected to be in FFA. This expectation is similar to what is expected of students enrolled in vocal or instrumental music classes --participation in performances is required and is a part of the students grades. The difference is that in Ag Ed classes you aren t required to participate in all activities, just some activities which are assigned. Therefore, your participation in FFA will never reduce your grade. Students need to participate in at least 3 FFA events during each 9 weeks in order to receive full points for the 9 weeks. FFA will count as 10% of the student s grade. The follow is an estimated calendar for Utica FFA. Events may be added or removed. For the most up to date calendar, please visit and select the Utica FFA calendar. Information about events will be supplied to students in the classroom. If you need more details about events, please contact Mrs. Neff. 4

6 *- We must qualify to compete **Please note that this is not an all-inclusive list and is subject to change to due to cancellations, addition of events and local events. Not all things we participate in are known at this time. Eligibility for FFA Membership FFA membership is limited to students who are enrolled in Agricultural Education courses and certain graduates. Because FFA is an intra-curricular activity (not extra-curricular) it is considered part of a class. If a student wants to join FFA, they must enroll in one Ag Ed class during the school year. There is no way around this policy it is federal law. The FFA Year begins on the first day of school and ends on the last day of summer vacation. Therefore, a student enrolled in any Ag Ed class for the school year is eligible for FFA membership beginning on the first day of school and lasting throughout the entire school year and the following summer. Graduates who were FFA members during their senior year and participated in FFA for two years during high school may continue to be members of FFA. If the graduated student elects to retain membership, the chapter will pay their dues. Graduate membership must be continuous membership. FFA Activities that Everyone Should Attend FFA is different from other intra-curricular activities that are part of a class such as Band or Choir because members of FFA get to select what activities, performances, competitions, and projects they become involved in. FFA members are not expected to do everything you decide what to do base on your interests. However, there are a couple of things that every FFA member should plan to do. They are: 1) Attend the Annual FFA Banquet, with their family 2) Attend the Monthly FFA Meetings. 3) Participate in 1 CDE per school year. An explanation of each follows. Please consult the FFA activity calendar for the dates of these events, and write these dates on your family calendar and make plans to attend: 1) Annual FFA Banquet The annual FFA banquet is the highlight of the year for the FFA all members, families, Alumni, and supporters should plan to attend. Students are required to wear dress clothing, (for boys; button up shirt, polo, sweater, khakis or black dress pants, for girls; skirts/dresses, dress slacks, dress shirts or blouses) they want to look their best as they receive their awards. If they are able to wear official dress, that would be ideal. Following the meal, we will move to the evening s program, which generally includes the following presentations: County/District/State Recognition Chapter Proficiency Awards Leadership Awards Scholarship Awards Installation of new FFA Chapter Officers 2) FFA Meetings Every FFA member should attend the meetings. FFA meetings will be held the first Wednesday of every month, after the school day has dismissed. The times will vary month to month, to try and accommodate other activities schedules. 6

7 Appropriate dress is required at FFA meetings, meaning that the school s code of dress is in force. Students may choose to wear FFA T-shirts, and some even wear their FFA jackets to meetings. This is only required for officers. Meetings are conducted using official FFA opening and closing ceremonies and correct parliamentary procedure. The agenda may include new and old business, guest speakers, activities and fun competitions, the formation of committees, door prize drawings, and announcements of upcoming opportunities. Most of the time there is some type of activity during the meeting such as recreation, food, committee meetings, etc. FFA Point System/ Grading System To reward FFA members for participating in FFA activities, they are awarded points on the FFA point system. These points will determine certain FFA awards and will be a determining factor in some FFA trip selections. Points vary for each activity. Leadership Activities 5 Attendance at FFA Meetings add 2 if member wears FFA T-shirt add 5 if member wears Official FFA Dress 5 Committee Meetings 5 County/Invitational Career Development Events 5 Other Local Events 10 District Career Development Events add 10 if 1 st or 2 nd place in any skills contest 15 State Career Development Events add 10 if 1 st or 2 nd place in any skills contest 15 State FFA Convention add 10 if in FFA Band, Chorus, or Talent add 15 if an officer candidate add 10 points for competitions add points for Ohio State FFA Degree-see SAE & Degree Section 20 National FFA Convention add 15 if in FFA Band, Chorus, or Talent add 15 points for competitions add 15 points for proficiency awards-sae & Degree Selection 20 Washington Leadership Conference 20 Other-districts, state, or national leadership activities that are not listed elsewhere on this page Special Activities Points determined by Advisor/Officer Team.5 Chapter CDE Practice Fundraisers & Service Projects 1 Sell $10 in Fundraisers example: Sell $500 worth of product; Get 50 points.. 5 Points Per Hour For FFA Service Projects SAE Projects & Degrees 20 Proficiency Award (local, district, state, national) 10 Greenhand FFA Degree 20 Chapter FFA Degree 100 Ohio FFA State Degree State and County Fair Exhibits (FFA Shows Only) 10 (per exhibit) Beef, Dairy, Swine, Sheep, Horses, Rabbits, Poultry, Horticulture, Floriculture, Photography How to Collect Your Points FFA activity points will be calculated using a google form. Students will update this form on their own, it is recommend that they update this monthly. FFA Grading System FFA counts as 10% of EACH 9 weeks grade. To receive this grade, you must attend 3 FFA activities. If you attend less than 3 activities, then you will not receive full points. CDE practices count, but 5 CDE practices = 1 activity. There will be multiple activities in each 9 weeks, so it will not be a problem to receive this part of your grade. However, you will need to make the time to attend these events, as they may be after school. 7

8 Career Development Events These are events where students are judging various things, based on the contest. Students can participate in as many as they would like, but must attend a minimum of 5 practices before they can attend the District or State Contests. The following is a brief synopsis of each event- if you would like more detailed information, please go to It is vital that in order for students to be prepared for a contest and be eligible to go, that they attend practice. Practices are normally held after school on Tuesday and Wednesday. If the scheduled practice times do not work, students may come in during lunch, study hall, or in the mornings before school. Students will need to ASK to make these arrangements and to obtain passes.

12 FFA Conferences and Camps The Utica FFA takes multiple trips to leadership conferences, conventions, and competitions throughout the year. As a rule, students must not have been suspend and must be passing all classes. Students will have a permission to miss form to retrieve signatures from other teachers that it is okay to miss their class. If the student does not have the permission of the other teacher, they may not be able to attend the field trip. On all FFA trips, students pay for their own meals (with a few exceptions as noted) and incidental costs such as souvenirs. On some trips, FFA members are asked to pay a fee to the chapter to cover a portion of the expenses. State FFA Convention Students wishing to attend must pay the registration fee. In the past we have went to the Columbus Zoo, Grater s Ice Cream, Croton Egg Farm, the Ohio Department of Agriculture and the Northmarket. Students will need to pay $20 to $150 to attend State Convention, depending on the events. Any student is eligible, as long as they meet the above criteria. National FFA Convention Students wishing to attend must fill out an application, and will be selected through a competitive process based on the quality of their application. Priority is given to upper classmen and students who are receiving awards or competing. Highlights of the convention may include the Convention Sessions, the National FFA Center, FFA Career Show; National Contests; Leadership Workshops; Field Trips to area attractions. Visit the FFA web site at for more information. All students attending the National FFA Convention will pay a fee in the range of $ depending on the total cost of the trip and success of student s fundraisers. District Officer Training Newly elected FFA officers travel to one of the schools in our district to learn about how to be the best officer they can be. An afternoon is spent sharpening their leadership skills, planning for the coming year, and learning to work as a team. All officers are expected to attend and will need to bring money to pay for the meal afterwards. Chapter Officer Retreat Each year, the newly elected FFA officers spend time sharpening their leadership skills, planning for the coming year, and learning to work as a team. The dates and location of this trip varies based on the schedules and interests of the students. Sight-seeing and recreation may also a part of this trip. All officers are expected to participate, and will pay for a portion of the trip expenses, in the range of $10-50 depending on the cost of the trip. This may or may not be an overnight trip. 360 Conference Freshman-Sophomores If personal growth interests you, then the 360 Conference may be the conference for you. Focused on building your confidence and competence, you have the opportunity to build a foundation of excellence through your own talents, skills and will power. 360 Conference helps you grow personally and realize what it takes to be a premier leader 212 Conference Juniors-Seniors If you have ever been asked What are you going to do after high school? and you don t have a clear answer, this conference might help you with that question. Specifically designed for junior and senior FFA members, the 212 Conference focuses on career exploration and preparation. You will have the opportunity to learn about a wide variety of 12

13 careers available in the field of agriculture. By polishing your leadership and communication skills, you will learn how to best prepare for your future career. Washington Leadership Conference Summer, Washington D.C. From your local FFA chapter to the nation s capital, that s where you ll be headed if you join hundreds of other FFA members at the Washington Leadership Conference. Set in Washington D.C., this week-long summer conference takes your leadership skills to their highest level. Focusing on problem-solving, relationship building, and character and serving others, WLC teaches you how to have a positive impact on you school, chapter, community, state, and country. While you are practicing all these skills, you will also take in such historical sites as the Jefferson Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, and World War II Memorial. Plus, you ll meet lots of new friends from around the country. Individual Opportunities for FFA Members Exhibiting at the Hartford Fair Members of the Utica FFA may exhibit livestock, mechanical, and other projects at the Hartford Fair in August. Projects exhibited will be a student s Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE) program and records should be maintained on this project. Participants can pick up livestock ID forms, entry forms, premium books, etc from the FFA Advisor or visit the Hartford fair website, All forms should be turned into the FFA Advisor by the established deadline, NOT directly to the Hartford Fairboard Office. Because the County Fair is an Individual FFA Activity, the chapter encourages participation, but does not provide financial support, transportation of livestock, or supervision. Important dates to remember for the Hartford Fair include; the Market Beef Weigh-In, Market Lamb Weigh-In, Market Hog Weigh-in, the Livestock ID Deadline, and Quality Assurance training. Working at the Hartford Fair Students are able to help set up and tear down our fair booth with FFA projects at the fair. This will happen prior to the fair and after fair. State Band and State FFA Chorus The State FFA Chorus provides entertainment at sessions and other events associated with the State FFA Convention. These very skilled musicians are selected through a process that includes a recommendation from the local music instructors, the approval of the FFA advisor and an application. The State Band works closely with the chorus and is selected through a similar process. Application materials can be downloaded from The deadline is typically March. National FFA Band and National FFA Chorus The National FFA Band and Chorus provide entertainment at sessions, workshops, meal functions, and other events associated with the National FFA Convention. These very skilled musicians are selected through a highly competitive process that includes a recommendation from the local music instructors, the state FFA band or chorus directors, and an audition tape. Application materials can be downloaded from The deadline is typically in late April or early May. Members selected for the National Band or Chorus will travel to the convention site several days earlier than the rest of the chapter in order to practice. Because this is an individual activity, the chapter encourages students to participate, but does not provide financial support or supervision. Chaperones are provided by the National FFA Organization. Because it is a great honor for the chapter to have a member selected to the band or chorus, the chapter will pay for the cost of 13

14 transporting band or chorus members to and from the convention in a way that is most cost effective for the chapter(when the band member is traveling with the group). The individual member is responsible for transporting instruments, paying any fees to the National FFA for music, hotel, etc. and for their meals. Summer FFA Camp Every year FFA camp is held at Camp Muskingum in Carrollton, Ohio. If a student wishes to go, they need to let the FFA advisor know and pay the fee for camp. Some scholarship money is available. Students have a chance to meet students from across the state and have fun swimming, canoeing, paint balling, rock wall, and also gaining leadership skills from session let by the State FFA officer team.
