Students Compete in National Agribusiness Competition

Four Chico State Agricultural Business students participated in the Academic Bowl held at the annual Agricultural & Applied Economics Association (AAEA) meeting in Seattle, Washington, Aug. 12-13 at the Washington State Convention Center. The team representing Chico State was Breanna Benton, Katie Hall, Cecilia Wilson and Brittany Krueger.

The Academic Bowl is a double-elimination jeopardy-style competition that tests the competitors on their knowledge of several different aspects of agricultural business and economics. The team made it to the third round of the competition before being eliminated.

The team prepared for this competition during the 2012 spring semester while earning course credits in “Agricultural Business Competition.”
