UC Davis Field Day 2021
Friday, March 5th & Saturday, March 6th
While Field Day 2021 feels far away, you all know that the planning for this big event starts early! The current guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requires that "all gatherings should be postponed or cancelled" until further notice. As such, UC Davis is prohibited from holding any in-person social gatherings, meetings or events, regardless of the location.
The College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences remains committed to hosting a quality Field Day experience at UC Davis to serve our FFA & 4H communities. We are excited to announce that we will be offering a selection of virtual contests this year and continuing to provide awards for high teams and high individuals. Awards will be distributed to local chapters or held at UC Davis for pick up. Our student coordinators and their advisors are working hard to create engaging contests that will provide valuable practice and experience despite the remote setting this year. We cannot guarantee that contests will be CATA compliant, as we will need to make adjustments, but we will follow the guidelines as closely as the online format permits.

- Agriscience Fair

Important 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 email@example.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 2021 and hope to see you there!
