Please note the check-in times and event locations, as they are different for each event. The circle drive at the Reitz Student Union is a great drop-off point in the middle of campus. Once you drop your passengers off, you may pay to park in the Reitz Union garage or you may park free of charge in the Commuter Lot on Gale Lemmerand Drive. Do not park in any lot that has a color designation other than Green. Parking lots with signage containing Red, Orange, Blue, Brown, Visitor, Metered, Restricted, or a specific license number, etc. are restricted and violators will be ticked and/or towed. Once you locate your building on the list below, you can use the UF Campus Map at the following link to determine driving directions. http://campusmap.ufl.edu/. If you have parking questions, please call UF Parking and Transportation Services at 352-392-8048.
Membership & Competitive Event Participation
FFA members competing in any Career Development Event (CDE) or Leadership Development Event (LDE) at the state level (including online and onsite preliminaries) must be listed on the chapter’s membership roster and the roster must have been submitted to state. During the two business day period following the publishing of event results, while results are considered to be “unofficial”, membership eligibility will be confirmed for all participants on qualifying teams. For any chapter whose members are not found on the roster, the FFA advisor will be notified and given an opportunity to correct the roster and pay a $100 late fee by the close of business (5:00pm EST) on the second business day. If corrections are not made and/or the late fee not paid, students will be removed from the score report.
Quality Chapter Plan Submission & Competitive Event Participation
FFA chapters must submit the Quality Chapter Plan prior to participating in any competitive event. If the Quality Chapter Plan has not been submitted by the close of business on the published registration deadline, the chapter will not be considered for official ranking within that event. There will be NO EXCEPTIONS! While the chapter will be eligible to register and participate, participants will not be included in the scoring process. To avoid eligibility issues, the Quality Chapter Plan should be submitted by the published due date. You will not be able to register without confirming you have completed this step.
Per Florida FFA Board Policy, NO ALTERNATES will be permitted to participate in any competitive event.
