New London FFA
NEW LONDON On Oct. 3, eight New London FFA students from the agricultural education program attended the district soil judging career development event. Land and soil judging contests help agriculture education students and others appreciate the land and soil. Such contests enable participants to understand the physical features, classify land according to its capability, and to become acquainted with conservation practices. The two teams judged three soil pits and slopes, and took a book knowledge and soil survey test.
The urban team consisted of Missy Hale, Nick Gerlack, Carl Resor, and Christina Chaffee, and the rural team consisted of Huston Edwards, Katie Morris, Cody Moore, and Taylor Jackson.
