On October 4, the annual Vermont Future Farmers of America (FFA) Soil Judging Contest took place in Randolph, VT.
Once again the Forestry and Agricultural Land Management class participated in the competition and took home the first place trophy. The students have been working very hard on this for a while and it clearly showed as the Windham Regional Career Center won again. Competing against 10-16 schools at the state level, WRCC has now won the soil judging competition 18 years in a row. This has earned us the privilage to represent the state of Vermont in the national contest in Oklahoma this May. Students have been instructed by teacher Dennis Hamilton and Para-Educator Errold Nelson.
Mr. Hamilton has been teaching for 33 years and was just last week named the FFA advisor of the year in Vermont. Congratulations to all of the students as well as Mr. Hamilton and Mr. Nelson.
