On May 1, the National FFA Association announced the 2013 National FFA Scholarship winners. This year, more than $2.1 million was donated by 125 sponsors (businesses and individuals) to fund the National FFA Scholarship Program. The selection committee considered: the applicants involvement in FFA, work experience, Supervised Agricultural Experience (SAE), community service, leadership skills, and academics. This year, FFA awarded 1,645 scholarships to assist students in their post-high school educational endeavors.
