Changes to the registration process

This year, UC Davis Field Days' registration will be hosted by JudgingCard.com.  FFA Chapters can access JudgingCard.com using their National FFA chapter number or the login they already use for The AET. All payments will be made to JudgingCard.com and can be made by check or credit card.  For 4H teams and contestants, registrations will have to be managed by your county office.  Accounts have been created for this purpose and your county staff needs to reach out to JudgingCard.com to activate these accounts.  Please have them email info@judgingcard.com to gain access to the account.  Registrations are not to be made through the JudgingCard system by parents, coaches or students.  JudgingCard accounts are meant to be accessed at the county level. 

We are looking forward to Field Day 2023 and hope to see you there!
