   5.  Divisions:  Varsity, Junior Varsity, and as many Practice members as you wish

   6.  Rings:  Insect ID (10), Crop ID (25), Weed ID(25), Machinery ID(20), Written Exam(25), Corn Judging ring,
         and A soybean Judging ring.  Our event will be very similar to the Illinois FFA Agronomy CDE, Except we
         will use insect practicum rather than soils.  You will identify 10 insects.

   7.  Format:  This is a virtual event, and therefore each advisor will be responsible for
        supervising their students.  Each practicum will have a file within a folder.  Each file will be a pdf. 
        The link to the folder  will be  emailed to you and your students. The Scantron used in our event will be
        an electronic form.  It is formatted the same one used in the Illinois FFA Agronomy CDE.  We would
        suggest that you have students print  out the scantron attached to this email and put their answers on
        it in the event the electronic version is somehow lost or erased before your student is able to submit it.
        Do not submit the electronic scantron until you are completely finished.
        The pictures of weed and crops will be of  seeds, mature, or seedling plants The exam will be a pdf.  If
        photos of plants are used a mature plant and seedling picture will be presented on the same slide.  If
        your Section decides to use our event for your Section Agronomy CDE, we can create reports  within

  8.  Results:  Results will be on  

We have attached the scantron and our rules to this email.  Any other questions please contact Howard Heavner at or cell number at bottom on email.
