Collegiate Discussion Meets held 

 

Two students emerged victorious after Indiana Farm Bureau Collegiate Discussion Meets were held this week at Purdue University and Vincennes University.

Micah Matlock from Knightstown, Ind., won the Purdue Discussion Meet. Jacob Hall of Rushville, Ind., was the Vincennes winner.

Matlock is a freshman majoring in agribusiness management and minoring in political science at Purdue. He is the son of Marty and Robin Matlock of Knightstown.

Hall is a second year student studying ag business management at Vincennes. He is the son of Doug and Christy Hall of Rushville.

The Purdue contest had eight participants while 35 students competed at Vincennes.

In addition to $750 in scholarship money, both students have the opportunity to travel to Grand Rapids, Mich., in February to compete in the national contest at the American Farm Bureau Federation Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership Conference.

The Discussion Meet simulates a committee meeting. Topics are pre-determined, and contestants are evaluated on their ability to exchange ideas, offer constructive criticism, cooperate and communicate while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions.
