Proficiencies are rewarding for FFA members.  Any member that is involved in agriculture development can participate.  These competitions offer members a chance to show what they are most involved in at home or the community.  There are two categories of proficiencies, those being Placement or Entrepreneurship. The differences are if the member works for someone else then they would participate under placement.  If they own their business it would be considered Entrepreneurship. Proficiencies offer members the opportunity to get involved and support the Agriculture community.
