FFA TALENT CONTEST RULES

 1. Each area may send one talent team to the state talent contest. The respective area teacher coordinator must properly certify each team.

2. Each team will be allowed a maximum of EIGHT minutes to perform. The stopwatch will begin when the performance of the talent team starts (i.e. singing, playing, etc.) The stopwatch will run throughout the performance and end when the talent team is completely finished.

3. One state talent team winner will be selected by plurality vote. Each delegate votes only once for two contestants.

4. Talent team members must be enrolled in high school and be a member of the FFA at the time of the district level election. All team members must be currently enrolled in an agriscience course at the time of the district election or have been enrolled in an agriscience course during the current school year.

5. No additions may be made to talent teams after the district election; however, qualified substitutions will be permitted.

6. Order of performance will be determined prior to the talent contest at the rehearsal.

7. Talent teams will have a chance to rehearse on-stage prior to the state contest. (Time of rehearsal will be limited by the time in between each session.)
