The South Effingham FFA Land Judging Team recently placed third in the Area IV FFA land judging career development event. The event was held in Kite on Oct. 16.
The Land Judging Career Development Event provides students the opportunity to determine land classification, use and treatment practices for selected sites. The students must consider topsoil texture and thickness, effective depth, permeability of subsoil, slope, erosion, drainage and land capability. Team members include Adam Barnard, Nick Mullins, Heather Colson, Lauren Conner and Brett Carter.
FFA is a national organization of over 449,000 members preparing for leadership and careers in the science, business and technology of agriculture. FFA is an integral part of the agricultural education program in public schools. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.
The land judging career development event is sponsored by Georgia Farm Credit Associations as a special project of the Georgia FFA Foundation.
