year's clinic. When registering you will find that there FOUR different
clinics. We have decided to divide the juniors and seniors into a
beginners clinic and an advanced clinic. These will be different from each

*Be**ginners clinics* will be anyone that has never been to the clinics
(junior or senior) in the past *OR* if you, as the AG teacher, feel as
though they need to go through some of the basic skills again. For example,
maybe your students came as a junior student and attended the
junior clinic but needs to go through the basics again in the
senior clinic because they have never done the senior level designs.

*Ad**vanced clinics* will allow students to design more freely using skills
taught in years past. This clinic will move much faster and will not stop

clinics for JUNIORS and SENIORS. Junior students remember are 9th grade and

your students fits.
