The Florida FFA Hall of Fame began in 2007 to pay tribute to those outstanding individuals who have helped make the Florida FFA Association the premier youth leadership organization in the state.

Because of the support of these individuals, Florida FFA has become home to more than 17,000 FFA members in more than 350 FFA chapters across the state.  FFA members are engaged in a wide range of agricultural education activities, leading to more than 300 professional career opportunities in the agricultural industry.

The Nomination Period for the Florida FFA Hall of Fame is February 1st through April 15th of each year. The application will be posted here during the open period.
