Teachers,

I have attached some instructions regarding filling out the Forestry Scantron that we will be using at the Area contests. Please go over this with your students so there is not any confusion and your students will fill out the scantron correctly the day of the contest. An updated scantron has also been posted under the Forestry CDE section of the website. Make sure you are practicing with the scantron form # 302861. Students will still be provided the scoresheets that are posted on the website when they arrive at each practicum. If you look on the North Region page there is an instructional video on filling out the scantron that you can show to your students.
