Attention Advisors!


We would like to invite you to participate in our CTSO Day, here at the Georgia National Fair this October. As part of the 30th Georgia National Fair we encourage students to come attend their Organization’s Rally Day while also enjoying our livestock shows, award-winning Stories of Agriculture display, all of the Georgia Grown exhibits and have the opportunity for a first-hand look at Agriculture outside of the classroom.

Admission for your Rally Group is FREE to all rally advisors, students and bus drivers with your Rally Group Admission Form presented at the East Gate Entrance to the Georgia National Fairgrounds. Any and all chaperones must pay for admission into the Fair. The Rally Group schedule for the 2019 Fair is listed below. Please feel free to contact your State Executive Director or Organization’s Leader with any questions you may have.

We will have Volunteers at the East Gate Entrance to assist in checking- in your group and they will be happy to answer any questions you may have at that time. Please note, you must have your admission form completed and present at the time of entry at the East Gate or you will be charged admission for all individuals in your party. Admission forms will be collected at the time of entry, thank you and we look forward to having you all here in October!
