Thank you to Al Garner and Treutlen County for hosting the Area 4 event.  Also, thanks to Mr. Garner and his officer team for preparing the meal and for all of their assistance.

Thank you to Area 4 Officers Alyssa Rauton and Kaylee Coleman for their assistance with scoring. Thank you also to Alley Bennett for her help with scoring.  

Thank you to Camp John Hope and Casey Shumate for hosting the Area 3 event.  The new facilities were excellent and seem to almost be designed for the EMC event.  Thanks to Hudson's BBQ for an ecellent lunch.  

Thank you to Area 3 Officers Haydon Roberts and Lizzi Neal for their assistance with the event.

A Huge thank you goes out to all EMC Personnel who assisted with the event.  Georgia's EMC's sponsor the FFA/EMC CDEs by providing not only financial support for awards, materials, and food but also a valuable physical presence with their help in set-up, grading, and scoring.  They are present from start to finish in each CDE and all workshops.  This event literally would not happen at such a grand scale without their support.  At the risk of leaving someone out I am going to try and list all EMC personnel attending this year's events:

Best wishes to the students listed above who were the top two in each area as they represent their respective areas and Central Region in the State CDE in January.

A complete list of results and scores are attached.
