Conservation Districts in order to help the local Agricultural Education Programs experience what they have learned in the classroom.

In the Rural Land Judging Event students are asked to judge a marked area for the Land Description, Land Capability, Land Use and the Recommended Conservation Practices. Students get to apply their classroom knowledge to real-life situations. Members of the Big Walnut Team include Ali Carter, Harrison George, Emily Boyd and Hailey Wauben. Ali Carter placed 4th overall out of 102 students.
The event was held at the Becks Research Plot near the Farm Science Review in London, Ohio. This is one of the many educational activities in which FFA members practice the lessons taught in the agricultural education classes.
