We were happy to host the Association of Florida Conservation Districts Area II Speech Contest this year featuring contestants from Levy, Suwannee, and Duval County. Sydney Allen from the Levy Soil & Water Conservation District will move on to the statewide contest in July. Thank you to Allyson Ouellette (2nd - Duval County) and Alexa Carnahan (3rd - Suwannee County) who did an excellent job discussing "Healthy Soils are Full of Life."
