The South Region Floral Design CDE will be conducted in two rounds this year. 

  1. The first round will include the Identification of Floral Goods (Junior and Senior) and the General Exam (Senior Only). These events will be conducted through Q-Bank. This event will serve as a qualifier for the second round. The top 10 students in each Area will move on to compete in the second round. 

  2. The second round will include the Arrangement portion of the CDE. Juniors and Seniors will both design ONE arrangement. Only the top 10 Juniors and Seniors from the first round will compete in this portion of the CDE.

Registration

  • Teachers will register for the preliminary CDE through the GAAGED Website by Wednesday, 1/27. Due to students not being able to carry their arrangements home this year, there will not be a materials fee for the final event.
