Stars Over Iowa
The Stars Over Iowa award program recognizes FFA members who have outstanding involvement in all components of the three-circle model: Classroom/Laboratory, SAE, and FFA.
Students can apply in one of four star areas: Agribusiness, Agricultural Placement, Agricultural Production, and Agriscience. Students who apply and qualify for their Iowa FFA Degree the same year are eligible to compete in this award area.
Recognition of the top members in each respective area occurs at the annual Iowa FFA Leadership Conferenceeach April. The finalists are interviewed and an overall winner is selected and recognized. Members who aspire to continue growing their program and experiences can apply for American Star opportunities after graduating from high school. American Degree and American Star Finalists are recognized at the National FFA Convention & Expo each fall.
