The 2022-2023 Officer application will be available later in the spring. Only a student who will be going into the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade for the upcoming school year may apply to be an officer. Potential incoming officers must have participated in a minimum of 60 percent of all activities for the FFA as well as at least 2 extracurricular events such as, but not limited to, Career Development Events, Speaking Events, AgriScience Fair, FISD Show Team, or competed in a Leadership Development Event for the current school year. This will be confirmed by the FFA Chapter Advisor of the Frisco Liberty FFA Chapter. To be eligible for office, the candidate must hold the minimum of the Greenhand degree. To be eligible to hold the office of the President, the candidate must hold the minimum of the Chapter degree prior to the application due date. This will be confirmed by the FFA Chapter Advisor of the Frisco Liberty FFA Chapter.

Therefore if you will be a sophomore for the upcoming school year, you are not eligible to serve as the chapter president; you are however, eligible for other officer positions. *This is subject to change with teacher discretion.*

The results of the officer application and election processes are an accumulation of scores earned by the candidate to fulfill the listed offices of the Frisco Liberty FFA Chapter.

The positions following the role of president will be filled from highest to lowest score in the following order: 1) President 2) Vice President 3) Secretary 4) Treasurer 5) Reporter 6) Sentinel 7) Student Advisor*. If the candidate with the highest score is either a sophomore and/or does not maintain the Chapter degree or higher, they will be placed in the next highest office. Only a junior or senior holding the Chapter degree or higher is eligible to serve in the office of the President per the FFA constitution and bylaws. *Student Advisor position will be filled at the discretion of the FFA Advisor.

Candidates must choose a one teacher from each of the following categories for a total of three letters of recommendations. The letters of recommendation are solely used to determine if there are any concerns for the candidate serving as Chapter Officer and no points are awarded from the teacher recommendations. The FFA Advisor will send the link to the three teachers indicated by the candidate on their online application. 1) Core LHS teacher 2) LHS CTEC teacher 3) FISD CTEC teacher. DO NOT SEND OUT EMAILS TO THE TEACHERS. 

The following items will need to be completed online via Google Forms and Zoom:

Officer Candidate Exam (Google Forms): The exam will contain 50 questions in a Multiple Choice format. 25 questions will test for the candidates understanding of Parliamentary Procedure (25% of the final score) and the second set of 25 questions will test the candidate's knowledge of FFA history and current issues of the organization and local Chapter (25% of the final score).

Officer Candidate Interview (Zoom): Interviews will be conducted TBA at an assigned time. Interviews will be conducted by 2-4 FISD teachers or administrators. The interview panel will use the officer candidate’s application to tailor questions so please take the application serious and present yourself to your fullest potential showcasing your abilities and passion for the FFA. The average of the judge’s scores will be given as the final interview score of the candidate comprising 35% of the final score of the candidate.

If you will be running for an office position, please email Mrs. Rocha by May 7th, 2020 so that an interview time can be scheduled. Email Mrs. Avant if you have any questions ( You will be assigned an interview time by the Chapter Advisor. Officer exams MUST BE taken before your interview.

Students are expected to dress professionally for their interview. Official dress is the expectation. The Chapter does have scarves/ties and official dress jackets available for students to borrow for their interviews if the student does not currently have these items. 

Interview Slots TBD

Chapter Voting: Potential chapter officers must create a 3-5 minute video introducing themselves to the Chapter and inform the Chapter why they believe they would serve the Chapter as a positive and energetic leader. Any candidate, who fails to post their videos, will no longer be eligible to run in this election cycle. During the preliminary voting conducted via Online Poling at the end of May, all eligible voters (current seniors may not vote in the election for next school year’s officers) will vote for their top three candidate choices. The preliminary votes will be counted and the top three candidates from the initial vote will be announced within the next week. The candidate that receives the most votes will be awarded 30 points, second highest number of votes will be awarded 20 points, and the third highest number of votes will be awarded 10 points. Candidates, who are not selected through the Chapter voting, will receive zero points in the Chapter voting category. To clarify; the vote is NOT the sole determination on which candidate will fill the role of President. The vote is merely a portion of the overall scoring.

Ties: In the event of a tie, we will go to the Exam Score for the Parliamentary Procedure portion. Should that not break the tie, we will then go to the Exam Score for the second portion of the exam followed by the Interview Score.
