To be eligible, members must earn and productively invest $7,500 through a supervised agricultural experience program in which they start, own or hold a professional position in and serve 50 community service hours. Recipients must also make it their mission to demonstrate outstanding leadership abilities and community involvement. Award recipients receive a Gold American FFA Degree key and a certificate in a blue leatherette frame. Henry is one of only 3,240 students who will be recognized with the honor this year.
