Ag Students Represent Chico State at National Quiz Bowl

July 22-24, 2011, four CSU, Chico College of Agriculture students, including Michelle Coon, Marcela Samaniengo, Elizabeth Tutt, and Casey Williams, traveled to Pittsburg, Pa., to compete in the Academic Quiz Bowl competition during the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association annual meeting.

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

Besides competing in the quiz bowl competition, the students had the opportunity to attend conference events as well as tour the city and visit museums.
