FFA members have their member ID (FFA ID) number and if you are asked to provide it while filling out the application form, you should do it.
The way to find out your FFA ID is by contacting your FFA advisor.
Being that the award goes directly to the school you have selected during your application, make sure that it is the right school, as you cannot change it after the application deadline.
Besides the application fore, other documents are necessary when applying, such as the high school transcript, FAFSA and Student Aid Report (SAR).
