Section 8 Horticulture CDE DetailsFriday, March 10, 2017
Posted on behalf of Colby Gregg at Naperville Central
Hello fellow section 8 teachers!
I’m writing from the section 8 Floriculture CDE, to begin thinking about section 8 Hort CDE!
There is a change of location for this contest – it will now be held at Naperville Central High School, with further directions for arrival and a map to follow the week before the contest. The Date [4/19] and Time [4:00 Registration, 4:15 start] remain the same.
The contest itself will be based on (and a little bit smaller than) the state hort contest:
- 1 Floriculture Practicum (to be decided, and emailed out at a later date).
- 1 Landscape Practicum* (Landscape Tool ID)
- 6 Judging Rings*
- 33 Plant Identification*
- 33 Question General Knowledge Exam (Study Guide to be emailed out at a later date)
*Possible species/tools can be found in the state horticulture guidelines (attached to this email).
Currently, I’d request a reply if you:
1)Are tentatively planning to attend (not set in stone, would just like to know what to expect ),
2)Have any ID plants that you would be able/willing to bring, and/or
3)Would be able/willing to provide any potential judging rings – 4 samples of the same species.
Please email me with numbers and species if any of the above apply.
Happy Spring, and be there or be !
