The McCook Central Chapter was awarded three stars and the Howard Chapter two stars.

The National FFA Chapter Award program recognizes FFA chapters for developing and conducting a detailed Program of Activities (POA). Each activity provides opportunities for members to excel in one of three areas: student, chapter or community development. Every year, chapters are recognized as having earned a one, two or three star rating on their application. Three star rating is the highest level of accomplishment a chapter may receive.

Other South Dakota chapters receiving the award are: Arlington, Garretson, Lake Preston, Lennox-Sundstrom, Viborg-Hurley and Deubrook.
