April 19, 2022

The School of Environment and Natural Resources (SENR) and Dr. Slater welcome contestants to The Ohio State University for the 2022 National Collegiate Soils Contest!

More than 20 teams from across the United States will engage in the description and classification of soils, and interpretation for various land uses. 

About the contest
The National Soil Judging Contest has been held at a different host institution each year since 1961 (except for 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19). Soil contestants arrive at various soil pits and are expected to correctly identify, evaluate, classify, and describe three soil profiles.
