The Soybean Science Challenge's goal is to bring real world agricultural (Soybean)
research into the classroom. The Challenge has done this through online courses, virtual
mini lessons, written lessons for the classroom, virtual field trips, presentations,
workshops and the Soybean Science Challenge at both regional science fairs and the
Arkansas State Science Fair.
Agriculture is a STEM-based economy that encompasses a plethora of scientists and
researchers from biochemists to computer science engineers. Farmers use innovative
technology and best conservation practices to grow crops that are both economically
and environmentally friendly. This requires a strong background in science.
The Soybean Science Challenge encourages students in grades 6-12 to enter the Challenge
with any agriculturally based or environmentally sustainable project in any ISEF affiliated
regional science fair or the FFA Agriscience Fair.
Requirements to enter are completion of the Soybean Science Challenge Online Course,
entering a science ISEF affiliated science fair or Agriscience Fair, and sending an
abstract to Soybean Science Challenge coordinator Diedre Young.
Winners are awarded $300-SR and $200-JR at the regional and FFA level and three awards
at the state level: $1000-1st, $500-2nd and $250-Honorable Mention. Teachers receive
$200 (SR) or $100 (JR) at the regional level and $300, $200, $100 respectively at
the state level. Science fair starts in March so consider sending an abstract in for
