The 100% Membership Award is given to those chapters who have a chapter membership roster that is equal to or greater than the number of members of 9-12 students enrolled in the schools Ag Education courses. To qualify for the 10+ Members Growth Award, chapters must show an increase of 10 or more members, in their membership from the previous year’s roster.  The Bronze emblem award is for chapters that completed and submitted a National Chapter Application on the state level.  Selection is bases on major activities described in Form II of the National Chapter Activity Award Application.
