Ag Ed CDE Materials Due Friday

The Ag Ed CDE lesson plan and supplemental materials are due to Megan Coy at by 11:59pm May 8th. 

With the movement of Illinois State FFA Convention to a virtual platform, we are in the process of deciding how we will conduct the second part of the career development event.  Advisors of students competing, look for a message from me to gather some feedback to present to the IAVAT Board as they make decisions. 

Below is the original message with all of the lesson plan links

Illinois Ag Ed CDE Information

Good afternoon Illinois Ag Teachers & Friends!  We all know that agriculture education is a career area were we need more people.  In order for the agriculture, food and natural resource sectors to find employees, we need agriculture educators sparking the interest of students to look at all the career possibilities.  General Information:

  • Each chapter can submit one entry 
  • Contest is broken into two parts, Preliminaries (Lesson Plan) and Finals (Demonstration & Judge’s Questions) 
  • Lesson plan/materials (powerpoint, handouts, Prezi, etc.) should be submitted via email to by 11:59pm on May 8th.  All teachers and students will receive a confirmation email from me upon receiving the materials (Students are not registered for the contest unless you receive this email).
