Each participant must have a clean clipboard, two sharpened pencils, and may have an electronic calculator. Calculators used in this event should be non-programmable with only these functions – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, equals, percent, square root, +/- key, and one memory register. No other calculators are allowed to be used during the event.
Each participant must bring his or her own instruments needed for particular events. For instance, measuring devices will be needed to determine antler length in the Whitetail Deer Management practicum. If there is a question as to whether a particular piece of equipment will be allowed, the decision will be made by the Area Forestry Teachers.
The junior team activity will not contain questions from the following reference: The Handbook of Georgia Boating Laws and Regulations.

Several CDEs will be taking place on March 24th on the UGA campus. The Georgia FFA office will send more general information for all contestants about the day as we get closer to the event date.
