Leigh FFA Competes In District Land Judging

October 22, 2020

By: Makenna Held, a junior at Leigh High School 

After a long few weeks of practicing judging land, the Leigh FFA was ready to compete at districts. District Land Judging was held in Pierce in a field two miles east and one mile south. All of the FFA members competed. This event occurred on October 6. 

Mrs. Alyssa Went, FFA advisor, said, “There was a record number in attendance for district land judging! 555 contestants from 23 schools! Things looked different than in years’ past, but we are so thankful we had the opportunity to compete. I am beyond proud of this group of students! We have practiced hard, and it is great to see hard work pay off.”

The competitors viewed and judged four holes in various areas of the field. They determined things such as permeability, slope, land capability, class, depth, surface texture, and more.

Leigh had one state-qualifying team that placed fifth. This team consists of Madison Noonan, Jacob Eisenmann, Mason Whitmore, and Korbee Wendt. Another team placed in the purple category at eighth, consisting of Alissa Kasik, Trevor Zulkoski, Kanyon Held, and Taya Hambleton. 

Madison Noonan, secretary of Leigh FFA and a junior, as well as a member of the state qualifying team said, “District land judging went great! After a few weeks of lots of practicing, our FFA chapter felt well prepared and ready to compete. I’m proud of how our team and chapter did, and I can’t wait to see how we can get better to do even better at state!”

Great job to the Leigh FFA competitors and good luck at state to Madison, Jacob, Mason, and Korbee!
