Many of you have downloaded proficiency applications from the National FFA
website. Newer applications have a font size issue that you need to
correct before submission. All text should be font style ARIAL and font
size *10*. Text in picture captions should be font style ARIAL and font
size *14*.

Older versions of Microsoft Excel does not spell check. And, I assume that
most you copy and paste your text to Microsoft Word for spell check. Please
double check your font style and size when you paste the text back into
Excel. The majority of the time, the text will default to a different font
style and size.

We have received many calls about the proficiency due date. Hard copy
applications (please provide electronic copies on a disc) must be in the
South Region Ag Ed Office by 5pm on February 15th. This is not a
post-marked date. Applications can not be submitted on February 16th during
the Sub-Area Leadership events.

If you plan to mail your applications, please use the following mailing
