Hello all my hard working South Region Agriculture Teachers gearing up for the 90th State FFA Convention!!!! 

On our South Region Calendar you may have noticed a State Convention Dry Run on April 3rd. The information for the dry run or practice day is listed below. Please fill out the google doc at your earliest convenience (by March 30th) so that we may plan for judges and space. 

This event is not mandatory. It is however, a tool for you to use with your students moving on to the State Convention to compete. We hope that it will be helpful and allow you to get some good feedback with a few weeks to practice back in your home chapters. Let's not forget that 19 out of 20 South Region State Proficiency Finalist winners received help before they interviewed at the State FFA Convention.  And 4 out 4 National Winners from the South Region also received help before they interviewed in INDY.
