Teachers,

It is hard to believe that it is Georgia National Fair time once again.  I
hope this email will serve as a summary of the opportunities for your
students to showcase their Environmental Education, Forestry and Natural
Resources SAEs.  Also, there will be ways for a a chapter and students to
earn some cash and hardware from these exhibits.  The GNF will once again
award the Superior FFA Forestry Chapter ($500.00) and the Reserve Superior
Forestry Chapter ($250.00).  These awards go to the chapters that
accumulate the most points in the Forestry Department.  Points can be
gained in Forestry Chapter Displays, Dendrology Notebooks, Minibooths, and
the tree ID contest.

This year EACH EXHIBITOR MUST BE PREREGISTERED ON LINE AT
HTTP://WWW.GEORGIANATIONALFAIR.COM/YOUTH-EDUCATIONAL-EXHIBITS/.  THIS
INCLUDES TREE ID CONTESTANTS AS WELL AS ANY OF THE OTHERS MENTIONED ABOVE.
 Online entries must be received by the fair by September 18, 2013.  A
password will be needed to enter contestants.  You can email the fair at
[log in to unmask] to obtain one or you can call 800-987-3247, ext. 555 or
use the user name and password that you got last year.  The deadline for
receiving passwords is September 16, 2013.  More detailed instructions
about entering students in the Tree ID Contest can be found on page 15 in
the gnfa FFA rules.  I will send a google document later on to recapture
some of this information.

Please refer to pages 11 - 15 for the rules of each of the different areas
and let me know if you have questions.
