The event begins with a practice contest, allowing the students to work through the various stations-soil interpretation, plant identification, wildlife habitat, grassland condition and plant identification to get a feel for the test and ask questions.
The actual contest occurs the following day at a designated location. After competing, each section of the contest is reviewed on site with the announcement of the final placing made official at the awards banquet that evening.
