*Finalist Interview Times*
I am including interview times assigned for your students entered in the
State Agriscience Fair.  Please call or e-mail me if you don't see a
student listed in the correct division or category.  Your students will be
interviewed by at least two judges at the assigned interview time.

*Appointment Times (tentative times)*
We will try to keep each interview at 15 minutes or less.   Please make
sure your student is at least 30 minutes early to their respective
interview times.
As you know, some students will talk less than others, and there is a
possibility that the judges for your student may be running ahead of
schedule.  If you have a conflict with another activity going on at the
same time, please let us know ahead of time, so we can make special
arrangements.  This schedule is tentative.  We will post a final
interview time schedule
in the Monument room on Thursday & Friday, for you to double check.
