  Poultry Evaluation  
     
State Poultry CDE      
Virginia uses the Youth Poultry Convention as  the official State FFA Contest.

The 2021 Virginia Youth Poultry Evaluation Contest will serve as the Official State 4-H and FFA Poultry Evaluation Contests.  This VIRTUAL event will take place beginning Tuesday, April 22nd and the contest platform will close on Monday, April 26th.  Contestants will be able to choose any time during those five days to sit for the contest and complete it.

 

Full details are outlined in the attached contest letter and contest rules – please take time to read them carefully, as the rules are very different for a Virtual vs. In-Person contest.  Several important items to note:

  • Reliable internet service with adequate bandwidth is necessary to view classes (pictures and videos)
  • Youth will need access to a desk top computer, laptop, or tablet – cellular devices may be used, but we cannot guarantee the ability to see the full scope of the pictures and videos
  • To uphold contest integrity, the contest must be proctored for ALL CONTESTANTS by a non-coach and non-parent adult – details and link for proctor approval are in the contest rules
  • Online entries are due by 5:00 pm on Friday, April 16th at this link https://tinyurl.com/2021-Virtual-Poultry-Contest
  • Entry fees are $20/team and $5.00/contestant not competing with a team – entry fees should be postmarked by Friday, April 16th
  • NEW for 2021:  Eligible Contestants that are enrolled in both organizations will be able to Dual-Enter, competing in both the 4-H and FFA Contests

 

This is an excellent opportunity to introduce youth who have an interest in poultry judging and product evaluation to the contest and process, without the commitment of travelling to a contest.  We hope that you will share this information with interested youth in your Unit and Chapter.  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at carterke@vt.edu or call 540-231-2257.
