§ See Display Requirements in the handbook to review size and other important details.
Ø The student may have a display board and up to five copies of the written report as part of the display. The copies of the written report are optional. No additional props, handouts, log book or electronic devices will be permitted.
§ Application reminders:
Ø The Agriscience Fair Application is housed in the Application Manager on FFA.org. I would strongly encourage advisors to review the Application and Written Report Directions. There are some really critical tips in that document that will be vital to those who have not used the online application or the templates before.
Ø The National FFA report templates are required for all written reports and are available on our website.
Ø The written reports templates have been updated. Please be sure your students use the appropriate report template for their division.
Ø Once the application is complete and written report is uploaded, the advisor/student will need to export this file. This will be a PDF document. If after exporting there needs to be an adjustment, the student can log back in, make the change, and export again. A complete submission includes the printed application and written report with appropriate signatures in the Region Office by April 1st.
