2021 State FFA Soil Judging Contest

May 10, 2021

Friday, April 30th the Field Extension Education Farm was host to the state FFA soil judging contest. These teams have already competed at the district level, this is the "state championship" contest. Competition consists of four soil pit evaluations and one knowledge exam. 

About 120 high school FFA students and their coaches from 30 teams across the state gathered to compete.

While covid made things look a little different, the day went quite smoothly. It was nice to be out in soil pits, on a beautiful day, and give students opportunities for learning more about soils.
