CDE Contest

I know that many students have been waiting to hear about CDE Contest this year!! Texas FFA is currently planning on having Face2Face Contest. All contests will have covid protocols in place in addition to the Plano ISD covid protocols. We are waiting on some approvals from Plano ISD before we set our schedule of contest we will attend, but we need to start practicing!!! Below students should sign up for any teams they are interested in competing in. Teachers will reach out to students to start practicing.


Our Tentative Plan is to attend 2 Invitational Contest. These will be day trips (no overnight travel).

Tarleton Invitational -March 25th

Cleburne/Alvarado Invitational-March 31st


Area 5 CDE Contest:

Monday April 12th-Dairy Cattle

Tuesday April 13th-Floral, Landscape, MQP, Vet Science, Poultry, Ento


Career Development Events build on what is learned in agricultural classes and encourage members to put their knowledge into practice. These events are designed to help a member prepare for a career in agriculture by testing and challenging the student's technical, leadership, interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as their knowledge of the subject matter. CDEs answer the question, "When will I use this knowledge in the real world?"
