Hello there again my fun loving south region agriculture teachers!

Just a friendly reminder that FFA Quiz and Farm Business Management CDEs are open but will close tomorrow for Area 5 and Thursday for Area 6.

Attached is the guidelines for the FFA Quiz CDE and the Farm Business Management CDE. Please take a moment and read through any changes that may have been made to these contests.

These contests can be found on the event registration page along with the other CDEs that are open to you in your area at this time.

FFA Quiz Info:

Purpose      
The FFA Quiz Career Development Event is designed to develop personal growth and premier leadership in younger members. They are able to gain recognition for their efforts in learning FFA history and facts as well as parliamentary procedure.

Eligibility      
This event is open to students in grades 6-9 who are agricultural education students, and are paid members of a chartered FFA chapter. Each student’s name must appear on the chapter’s FFA roster at least 10 days prior to competition above the chapter level.

The top two participants on the area level are eligible to compete at the state level. This event does not have a national level of competition.


Farm Business Management Info:


Purpose      
The Farm Business Management CDE is designed to teach management skills and critical and analytical thinking. It encourages and fosters the education of students in business management.

Eligibility      
This event is open to students in grades 9-12 who are agricultural education students, and are paid members of a chartered FFA chapter. Each member of the team must be a member of the chapter registering them, and each student’s name must appear on the chapter’s FFA roster at least 10 days prior to competition above the chapter level.

This CDE has a national level competition; students who are already a member of a state winning CDE team/event are not eligible to participate and no student on the state winning farm business team is eligible to participate in any other CDE until after the national competition.
