*Sent to All Teachers

It is time to register for the 2017 AgriScience Fair to be held on Tuesday, June 13th at the Illinois FFA State Convention. We are up to 51 participants as of right now. I sent out a confirmation email this afternoon to advisors who have students registered already. If you did not receive one and think that you should have, please let me know. 

How do I apply?
Complete the Illinois AgriScience Fair Registration Form by April 15th.

Where can I get more details?
Be sure to visit the Illinois AgriScience Fair Handbook for more information on categories, divisions and information regarding the science fair. If you have a question regarding the category please send the project information to Jennifer and we will determine the best fit for the project.

Students with projects that are accepted to compete will be notified by May 15th, via their advisor.

**New this year: Awards will be presented at the Illinois FFA AgriScience Fair Dinner at the Wyndham Hotel at 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday night. Awards will not be presented on stage on Wednesday morning, as has been done in the past. Ticket information will be included with convention registration. Lunch will not be provided to students this year since we are hosting a dinner.
