All study guides and tests are made up by experts in their field. Your local soil conservation district can help point you in the right direction to connect with experts for training before the events.
On the first day of the State Competition, teams will have trainings. The trainings are located at a different site than the actual test. Each student will have the opportunity to attend 3 stations to get hands-on experience and to learn more about the local area.
This years trainings will be virtual. Below are the times and dates for live discussions with our resource professionals. We recommend watching the training videos and reading through the study material first, so you can ask questions during the discussions. Trainings will be recorded, but all identities of students will be kept confidential.
