•Registration 3:45- 4:15. Contests start at 4:30PM.
•Tool Identification- students will Identify 25 tools from the list.
•Written Exam- Students will answer 25 multiple choice questions. Written exam questions match the skill selected for the FY 20 CDE (focus on electricity).
Skill- The skill will involve wiring a 120-volt circuit consisting of 2 boxes. Wire will be run in PVC Conduit. Students will only make connections. REMEMBER: Strip, hook, and attach the device. No mounting the device to the boxes and NO CUTTING OF THE WIRE!! The wire/conductor will already be installed in the circuit and boxes. There will be grounding wires already attached in each box eliminating the need for grounding clips (praise the Lord). Use only the tools and items provided to wire the circuit.
• Measurement- will match skill activity (wiring) and could include measuring boards, wire, & pvc pipe;
cubic dimensions of boxes; conductor count of boxes; or size of conductor. Make sure your student reads the question at
each station and measure what it is asking for. Also, please remind your students to reduce fractions to record their answer.
Ex. Johny measures the board and records 10 14/16'' - NOOO!
Johny needs to record 10 7/8" or else his answer will be counted wrong.
Also, make sure your students record the answer in inches and not feet and inches.
Ex. Susie measures the board at 1 foot and 6 11/16" and records it that way - NOOO!
Susie needs to record the answer at 18 11/16.
Finally please make sure your student record the units (inches,feet, etc.) along with their measurement. Or else, they will
receive half credit on their answer.
I believe that is all. If you have any questions please feel free to call me at the number below.
