Contests

Southeast District Forestry Judging Contest and Southeast District Land Judging Contest

Each spring for the past 39 years, we have sponsored the District Forestry Judging Contest for FFA and 4-H club members in Southeast Oklahoma. In 2007, we began sponsoring an annual Land Judging Contest for them as well. In conjunction with these contests, we award limited college scholarships to the first, second, and third place winning individuals. These scholarships encourage contest participation and create interest in the future of agriculture in Southeast Oklahoma. With the help of the Choctaw Nation, Eastern State Oklahoma College, and local conservation districts we have been able to continue these contests.

Info for scholarship winners can be found here – Scholarship-Rules
