ASABE^100 High School Multi-Media Competition
The American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) has announced the launch of a multi-media competition for high school students, with the purpose of increasing the understanding of the profession of agricultural and biological engineering.
The ASABE^100 Competition aims to motivate students to consider what our lives would be like were we not to enjoy the advances made over the past century by agricultural and biological engineers. Such advances had obvious impact on farming as a livelihood, but they also caused numerous other shifts in the way society functions and in our quality of life.
The contest is open to all students in grades 9 through 12 and comprises three elements: a short essay and two visual supplements. State winners will move on to district-level judging, district winners will advance to national-level judging, and among national winners three finalists will be selected to attend the ASABE 2007 Annual International Meeting, June 17-20, in Minneapolis, MN where they will be required to make a live oral presentation.
