The North Iredell High School FFA Chapter participated in the 68th Annual North Carolina Association Land Judging Career Development Event on Saturday, November 12, in Franklin County.

This event is sponsored by Duke Energy, the Soil Science Society of North Carolina and MVP Southgate.

Senior Team
The senior team placed 10th in the State and second in the Northwest Region. Team members include Mason Brown, Brayden Hill, Dalton Jordan and Shane Nicholson.
Junior Team
The junior team placed fifth in the State and first in the Northwest Region. Team members include Landon Crouse, Hayley King, Taylor Sharpe and Gabriell Southern.

This event encourages students in grades 6-10 to analyze land characteristics such as soil type, erosion, and drainage to determine the best possible use. Knowledge about soils can be organized and applied in managing farms, fields, and woodlands, developing communities, as well as engineering work.

Students are able to comprehend why soils respond differently to management practices and how soil properties affect crop growth and urban uses.
