Happy Monday Ag Teachers!

 

You only have 4 days left to register for the 2016 FFA Day at the Fair
program.  <https://goo.gl/forms/0JTvzkQCVuKY2f403> ONLINE REGISTRATION: 2016
FFA DAY AT THE FAIR

 

 

The Georgia FFA Association is proud to offer a wonderful opportunity for
ALL agriculture students. The 2016 FFA Day at the Fair Program will be held
on Tuesday, October 11, 2016, in Reaves Arena at the Georgia National
Fairgrounds in conjunction with the Georgia National Fair in Perry. This
activity targets agricultural education students and FFA members and is
designed to offer an interactive look at what agricultural education and the
FFA have to offer. 

 

There are two registration types this year: 

1.) Standard Blue registration is $10.00 per student and is the basic level
registration for the FFA Day at the fair Program. 

2.) Gold Plus registration is $15.00 per student and includes the Annual
State FFA T-shirt. 

 

The FFA Day at the Fair program has a few new additions this year! Three
contests will take place in correlation to the program, which include:

               1.) State FFA T-shirt Design Competition (for
members/chapters)  (VOTING IS ALREADY IN PROGRESS)

               2.) State Photo Competition (for members/chapters) 

               3.) Fill the Seats Award & Drawing (for advisors)

Additional information on each contest is attached to this e-mail and can
also be found on the Georgia FFA web site under "FFA Day at the Fair."

 

The FFA day program also has a new schedule. Registration will open at 8:45
a.m. and stay open through 10:30 a.m. During that registration time frame,
the North Corridor of Reaves arena will be filled with interactive booths
created by our Georgia FFA Area Officers, as well as booths sponsored by the
FFA Foundation, Alumni, and Camps. Once students check in through
registration, they are free to walk through the North Corridor booths. At
10:15a.m., the seating will open in Reaves Arena and pre-session will begin
shortly after. The motivational program begins at 10:45 a.m. and will
conclude just after noon. 

 

The motivational program presented by the 2016-2017 Georgia FFA Area
Officers includes a special message from the National Officer team, Creed
presentation, awards for the State T-shirt Design competition, Photo
competition, Fill the Seats drawing and award, and a humorous keynote from
the 2012-2013 National FFA Southern Region Vice President, Wiley Bailey. 

 

Additionally, ride armbands can be purchased for $16 each before the
registration deadline. If not pre-purchased, armbands may be purchased on
the midway with cash or credit card- no checks will be accepted at the
midway for armbands. We will not be selling armbands during onsite
registration that morning. The rides on the midway will open at 12:00 noon.
Lunches are not available for purchase through the state FFA office this
year. Students can bring money to purchase lunch on the fairgrounds.  

 

All chapters who register for the middle school program will receive a fair
entrance form and parking pass from the State FFA Office in late September.
