District Education Contests
For over 30 years Franklin Soil & Water Conservation District has participated in the North Carolina Association of Soil & Water Districts conservation contest. The contest theme is determined by the North Carolina Association and will always focus on agricultural, urban and local conservation subjects.
The 2013-14 contest theme was "The Living Soil".
Prizes were awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place grade winners in each school. All 1st place school winners competed against each other for an overall County prize. County winners were submitted to the Area IV contest and competed against 10 surrounding counties.
