  1. Judges Needed at National FFA Convention

 

 

Your help is appreciated in aiding the National FFA in securing hundreds of volunteer judges for agriscience, national chapter, certain CDEs and LDEs, and proficiency awards.

 

Full information about each volunteer opportunity is at: https://ffa.box.com/s/eonpycgzic17mb65vpoh153i98lm5bnt including information about how to register for each judging experience.  Volunteers will be accepted up through Wednesday, October 9.

 

Volunteering to judge is a great experience for parents, chaperones, school administrators, state staff, post-secondary educators, student teachers, and ag teachers.
