Devon O'Keefe is pleased to offer some Judging Exhibitions for your students to obtain "activities above the chapter level" for the state degree requirements.
We will be utilizing the website: www.livestockjudging.com and students can start practicing with the free edition.
We are going to run the Exhibitions March 2-5th and students will have from 4-9pm to judge the classes. Students must use the codes to enter the competition. If you did not receive the codes through the CAAE email list please contact Devon O'Keefe.
Note: None of these exhibitions move on to further competitions. No money is awarded. Each Ag Center can provide prizes to their students if they wish. The judging officials (from the website/show) might not match up with your placing of the class. This is simply to provide students an opportunity to obtain some activities to include on their state degree application.
