On Wednesday September 27th Versailles FFA students participated in the District Soil Judging contest and placed second out of 34 teams. The eight students from Versailles who competed were Kayla Bohman, Isaac Gehret, Dallas Hess, Caitlyn Luthman, Deanna Hesson, Jacob Wuebker, Grace McEldowney, and Kylie Lyons.
There were around 230 individuals competing in this contest. Dallas Hess placed 1st as an individual and Caitlyn Luthman placed 9th. The top four Versailles members will create a team to compete at the State contest on October 14th. These students include Dallas Hess, Caitlyn Luthman, Grace McEldowney, and Isaac Gehret.
A special thanks to St Charles Seminary for hosting the District 5 FFA Rural Soil Judging Contest and to Michael Schmitmeyer for digging practice pits for the team to use before the competition. Congratulations to these students!
