If you have members involved with farm-friendly youth organizations, remind them this year’s schedule of Youth Discussion Meets is now set:
The 2018 Regional Youth Discussion Meets are open to any high school 4-H and FFA members, dependents of Farm Bureau members or students interested in agriculture.
Participating students can win prizes for freely discussing current topics affecting Michigan agriculture, flexing their public speaking skills with peers from across the state. These discussion are not debates, but rather a way to share ideas, identify problems’ causes and effects, and evaluate and compare alternative solutions. Participants are challenged to cooperatively share ideas and develop their understanding of the topic at hand.
Eligible participants include all 4-H and FFA members, Farm Bureau member dependents, and any high-school student with an interest in agriculture.
