Event Location & Time

The Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems Career Development Event is held at the state convention in June.


Virginia FFA will have a senior and junior division of the Agricultural Technology and Mechanical Systems CDE. If advisors in grades 7-9 wish to have their students compete at the senior level, they must register their students as a senior competitor with the understanding that those students (even if eligible by grade level for junior awards) will only be eligible for senior team and/or individual recognition and awards. Only students in grades 6-9 are eligible to compete in the junior division.

*Participation may be limited to the first 20 teams to register.
