Students Compete in Agricultural & Applied Economic Association Academic Bowl

Announced on: Tuesday, July 30, 2019

Four students traveled to Atlanta, Georgia, to compete at the Agricultural & Applied Economic Association (AAEA) Academic Bowl from July 21-23, as part of the AAEA Annual Meeting. Kristen Martin, Alberto Perez, Dniqko Stewart, and Rachael Wilson were accompanied by professor and coach Eric Houk. The team made it to the fourth round of competition. 

The Academic Bowl allowed the students to represent the College of Agriculture in a “Jeopardy”-style quiz bowl featuring questions from eight agricultural and business themed categories. These eight categories include agricultural business and finance, macroeconomics, microeconomics, management, marketing, quantitative, resources and policy, and a “potpourri” category, which is a combination of all other themes.

In addition to the academic bowl, students attended sessions of the annual meeting and research symposia, listened to guest speakers, and networked with industry professionals and academia from across the world. Students also visited the World of Coca-Cola and Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
