Important Information for Area Qualifying LDE Teams

  • According to area policy, when a district doesn't fill their allotted 3 spots for the Area qualifying event, the fourth place team from the district with the highest entries in that event gets moved to compete. We don't know exactly what that will look like until the conclusion of all of the District LDE events. If you were a fourth place team, please be on standby for a possible opportunity to compete.

  • The Area LDE rotation schedule is posted below. Email area6ffaassociation@gmail.com if you need to make a switch in your scheduled performance time. Both advisors must agree to a switch before it will be made.
