The 2013 GCHS FFA Land & Soil Judging Team won the Regional Championship for the 3rd straight year on Thursday September 26th at Breckinridge County. The Land & Soil Judging Competition requires teams of students to evaluate the physical nature and capability of the soil at various challenging sites that they have never seen before. Each team must evaluate soil profiles, slopes, and erosion problems to assess the land’s potential. Teams must then apply conservation measures to minimize erosion and preserve the land’s maximum potential.
The Lincoln-Trail Region of the Kentucky Association FFA consists of 11 high school FFA Chapters including: Grayson Co., LaRue Co., Central Hardin, North Hardin, John Hardin, Nelson Co., Thomas Nelson HS, Marion Co., Washington Co. Breckinridge Co., and Meade Co.
The GCHS FFA Land & Soil Judging Team will now represent the Lincoln-Trail Region of the Kentucky Association FFA in the STATE FFA COMPETITION on Thursday November 7th at KY FFA Leadership Training Center in Hardinsburg, KY.
