Soil Judging Contest

The purpose of the New Hampshire Soil Judging Contest is to help high school students better understand some common characteristics that affect uses of the soil, and how some land uses may be considered better than others based on soil features. 

The primary intent of the Soil Judging Contest is educational – to teach soil characteristics and soil properties and how they affect selected uses. The competition aspect of the contest is a secondary intent, but it does provide a mechanism and motivation for learning about soils.
