Soya Festival

Every year in Amanda, the village hosts it's annual Soya Festival in September. The Amanda-Clearcreek FFA sets-up a booth to promote our chapter and to serve as a display area for the top soybean plants entered in the chapter's annual Soybean Pod Contest. In the contest, the chapter looks for the soybean plant with the most seed pods containing at least one good seed, though three to four seeds is normal. The Soya Festival ended in 2003.
