2019 Le Grand High School Field Day

2019 Le Grand FFA Field Day Information

The 4th Annual Le Grand FFA Field Day will be held at Le Grand High School on March 9th, 2019.  This contest was started to provide opportunities for chapters that are not able to register to compete at other contests.  We invite chapters that are waitlisted or are not registered for the CSU Chico Field Day to attend.  Please do not sign up for both Field Days as a courtesy to others to allow more schools to participate.

We will be hosting the following four contests: Ag. Mechanics, Floriculture, Veterinary Science (not state approved ranking contest) and Best Informed Greenhand.  We will be able to accommodate a total of 20 teams for Ag. Mechanics, Floriculture and Vet Science but will only be able to accommodate 14 teams for BIG.  

Registration for Floriculture, Veterinary Science, and BIG will be from 7-7:45AM in the LGHS Cafeteria, with the contests starting promptly at 8:00AM.  Registration for Ag. Mechanics will be in front of the Ag. Mech Shop from 7-7:45AM, with the contests starting promptly at 8:00AM as well.  Curricular Code will be followed for all contests.  The awards ceremony will be conducted after the contests and tabulations are completed in the LGHS Gymnasium.  Registration will open on January 29th at 8:00am and close on March 1st.  

There will be a $25 charge for each participant in the Mechanics and Floriculture contests with a team fee of $50. The cost will be $7 per contestant for the Vet. Science and BIG contests.  Each contest will follow curricular code. All schools will be allowed to register only one team per contest unless the contest does not fill up.  If the contest is still unfilled we will re-open registration and allow alternates or Novice Teams.


Lunch and a lite breakfast will be provided by our Ag. Department, at no additional cost, as there are very few options of dining in the Le Grand area.  Please make checks payable to Le Grand FFA.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to e-mail Amanda Galan at agalan@lghs.k12.ca.us or by telephone at (209) 769-0092.
