Allie Lock, a senior studying agribusiness management, placed in the final four of the American Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers Virtual Collegiate Discussion Meet recently. Lock won at the university and state levels before placing in the final four.
The Virtual Collegiate Discussion Meet, conducted using web conferencing again this year, is designed to replicate a committee meeting where discussion and active participation are expected from each collegiate participant. Participants are judged on their ability to exchange ideas and information on an agricultural topic and find answers or solutions related to it. As a finalist, Lock received $1,500 courtesy of CHS Foundation.
