Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts receives Kirkpatrick Foundation Grant

Wed, 08 Feb 2012 14:28:29 CST

Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts receives Kirkpatrick Foundation Grant As part of their continuing commitment to Oklahoma and the health of its environment, The Kirkpatrick Foundation of Oklahoma has awarded a grant to the Oklahoma Association of Conservation Districts (OACD) to help support the 2012 National Land and Range Judging contest to be held in Oklahoma City May 1st 2nd and 3rd.

“We are honored to have The Kirkpatrick Foundation as our partner in recognizing the outstanding youth from throughout the United States that come to compete in this contest,” Joe Parker, President of OACD said. “Their help in sponsoring this program and their commitment to protecting and conserving our natural resources is greatly appreciated. They are truly committed to the conservation and protection of our soil, water, air, and wildlife habitats.”

Each year The National Land and Range contest brings together over 1,000 contestants and sponsors from throughout the United States to Oklahoma City to compete in a three-day event that stresses soil and plant science, land management and conservation.

The Land Judging contestants qualify for the national event by placing among the top five teams at contests in their home states. The teens match their skills in judging the adaptability of the land for various purposes including farming, range management and home development. The skills these teens apply at the contest involve principles they can apply in career fields like environmental and agricultural management, natural resource conservation, homebuilding and construction. According to Parker, this donation by the Kirkpatrick Foundation will greatly help the continuation of this national event in Oklahoma.

“All Oklahoman’s should be proud of the fact that our state has hosted this outstanding event for 61 years,” Parker said. “With the committed help of folks like the Kirkpatrick Foundation, we can insure that this great program continues on into the future. We are proud to once again be hosting this event in Oklahoma and we are very grateful to the Kirkpatrick Foundation for their support.”
