A significant, innovative, or unique contribution of the alum/supporter in giving back to FFA or agricultural education programs within the state, their local community, or state-wide initiatives;
A special project, event, or issue/challenge supported by efforts from the alum/supporter within FFA or agricultural education programs within the state;
A unique service, action, or mentorship the alum/supporter provides to FFA or agricultural education programs within the state;
Fundraising or scholarship support efforts initiated by the alum/supporter for FFA or agricultural education programs within the state;
Other attributes associated with the alum/supporter that supports FFA and agricultural education programs, the local community, or state-wide initiatives.

Please remember that the plan should also focus on promoting agriculture, agricultural education, and the agricultural industry to consumers in your state."
