Soil Judging

The primary intent of the New Hampshire Soil Judging Contest is educational-to teach High School students the characteristics and properties of soil and how they effect selected uses. The competition aspect of the contest is a secondary intent but it does provide students with the opportunity to study and research information with their peers and then individually apply the information. Overall, NH Soil Judging is great fun and great training for future decision-makers!
