SAE, State Degree, Stars, Proficiencies, etc!

We’re going to use part of today to work in AET on our SAE records.


Seniors in their 3rd or 4th year of membership will be completing the State FFA Degree application.  There are several of you that should also complete the Star Battery for Star Farmer, Star Placement, or Star in Agribusiness.  There may even be a long shot Star in Agriscience??

The Star Battery is very similar to the proficiency apps we completed last year.

All Ag Leadership students will be completing a Proficiency app – or two!  We may not submit all of them for state judging, but, everyone will complete at least one.  Those of you who did proficiencies last year – you’ll need to update the one you did last year AND do another one – so start thinking about what area or areas you can fit yourself into!  Here are the 2017 descriptions

All of these applications will be completed in AET.  We will break things down into chunks, each with a corresponding due date.  More on that in another post.

Please refer to this sae-idea-sheet if you need to get some ideas for where what you are already doing fits into an SAE.

Before we do anything, we need to get our records in order.  See the Student Help section of AET here.

For accountability purposes, today’s blog post will be answering the following questions on your blog.

1. Your SAE – describe it, give an idea of its scope (size) how many acres, animals, square foot, hours etc.

2. What career cluster your SAE fits best into – use the SAE Idea Sheet linked above.  You may fit in several Clusters.

3. What Proficiency Area or areas will you apply in?  What area did you apply in last year?

4.  How far are you on completing your records?  You’ll need to have your records complete for each year you have been in FFA?  Let me know – done with sophomore year and half way with junior year etc.

Your post is due Monday, December 12, 2016 at 8:15 a.m.
