The Oregon Logging Conference isn’t just for the professional loggers, but also for the soon-to-be loggers.
A high school competition is held each year at the OLC and in 2013 the future loggers competed in:
• Cable Splicing
• Single Buck
• Compass & Pacing
• Tool Identification
• Log Scaling
• Forestry Speech
• Job Interview
To support the next generation of loggers, the OLC Foundation also awards scholarships. This year the foundation awarded $16,000 to six students attending both Oregon State University and Umpqua Community College.
In the last four decades the OLC has contributed over half a million dollars to deserving students.
