The Society of Agricultural Education Parliamentarianspartners with the committee to provide an accreditation opportunity if students score 80% or better on the exam. In the 2019 event, 87 students achieved this status.


In addition, the American Institute of Parliamentarians provided membership to anyone who competed at Nationals in their organization from now until the age of 30. This is a significant in-kind donation. ($20/year per student; $240 total per student; $68,000+ total annual commitment for entire event)
