After much discussion and thoughtful consideration, the LAD Executive Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel all LAD Events for this year to do our part to ensure the health and safety of our members, their families, and the local community. We are disheartened for teachers and their students to miss out after all of their hard work, but your health is more important.
Membership fees for the 2019-2020 school year will be rolled ahead to the 2020-2021 school year. If you do not plan to enter next year, you may request a refund, but please consider making a charitable donation to LAD Fair instead.
We look forward to seeing you all back next year.
LAD Sorting and Judging have been relocated back to Willard High School for this year. Please stay connected to your email and social media over the next few weeks in case we have other changes or announcements about LAD events.

The winners are posted. Please use the lists to alert students and parents to save the date for the LAD Fair, the last Saturday in April. Please understand that these lists are for informative and preparative purposes and are not intended as a press release. Volunteer judges and data entry individuals translate and transfer an enormous amount of information on the judging day so mistakes are made, despite our best efforts. Therefore, teachers, please make your corrections before submitting your results to school and community media. Thank you all for participating!
