COLLEGIATE FARM BUREAU DISCUSSION MEET   

The Discussion Meet is designed to simulate a committee meeting with questions, answers and statements coming from any person at any time.  Contestants discuss preselected topics as an exercise in cooperative problem solving, with discussion and active participation expected from each committee member.

Participants will be judged on: communication, cooperation, problem solving and constructive criticism.

The Collegiate Discussion Meet will be held in December during the Annual Meeting at Tan-Tar-A Resort. First and second place winners at the state level will receive an expense paid trip to the National YF&R Conference where the first place winner will compete for the national title.
