The Urbana FFA Chapter competed in the County Soils Judging Career Development Event on September 17th.
In Urban Soil Judging, students must judge the soil based on four different categories. These categories include: buildings with basements, septic tanks and absorption fields, driveways and local roads, as well as lawns, gardens, and landscaping. Urbana placed first in this contest, with Alistair Greenlee placing as first place individual, Janie Wallace placing second, Phoebie Heatherly placing third individual, Ashley Gemienhardt placing 5th individual, Marah Kerns placing 7th individual, and Kourtney Hilliard placing 11th individual.
In the rural contest, students judge the soil based on agricultural properties and have to determine whether the soil is suitable for agricultural crops. Urbana placed fourth in this contest with Paige Campbell placing 9th individual, Max Anderson placing 12th individual, Justin Preece placing 15th individual, Jonathan Hildebrand placing 17th individual, Payton Stambaugh placing 24th individual and Abigale Dillon placing 27th individual.
