  1. Virtual CDE Registrations

 

Poultry online registration: https://www.judgingcard.com/Registration/Info.aspx?ID=11291


Horticulture online registration: https://www.judgingcard.com/Registration/Info.aspx?ID=11292

 

As a reminder, Ag Business and Ag Communications registrations are currently available on ilaged.org. There have been a few concerns raised regarding the limited time to prepare for the Media Plan portion of the Ag Communications contest. As the IAVAT board discussed, we will continue to offer the full contest (media plan and individual practicums). If a school does not wish to participate in the media plan portion of the contest due to time constraints, they will be able to compete in individual practicum areas only.

 

Final details and registration links are still being finalized by the Livestock CDE host and will be shared as soon as they are available.
