Jan 19, 2017 by Hannah H Cantrell
The following information pertains to those preparing for the 2017 Food Science Career Development Event (CDE). A list of prequalified teams are attached.
The State Food Science CDE will be held Saturday, February 4th at the University of Florida. See the attached Event Overview sheet for complete event information and tentative schedule.
Please note that the contest introductions will begin promptly at 8:30 a.m. (tentative) All directions for this event (including sensory directions) will be given at this time so that we can maintain our scheduled rotation. If your team is not present for the introduction, we will be unable to hold up the rotation to provide directions later. Students will forfeit any portion of the contest missed because of late arrival.
Registration for this event is based on the maximum number of teams advancing from the preliminary Food Science CDE recently held in conjunction with the Fall Preliminary Testing. Please note that we will not be able to accommodate alternates at this event. IMPORTANT: If you are registered and will not be able to participate, please notify us as soon as possible.
IMPORTANT: Please be reminded that all team members must be current on the membership roster in order to be eligible for participation. If membership is questioned in any competitive event or award programs held above the chapter level, the advisor must then show evidence that state and national dues were paid prior to the student having participated in that event or award program. If membership for any team member is determined to be unpaid, the team will be disqualified from the event.
