Area youth compete in district agriculture contest at Northwest

More than 1,100 students from 54 northwest Missouri high schools competed April 3-4 at Northwest Missouri State University as its School of Agricultural Sciences hosted Northwest District Agriculture Career Development Events.

The annual contest is coordinated and facilitated by members of the Northwest agricultural sciences faculty, staff and students. Events take place on the Northwest’s R.T. Wright University Farm, the Maryville Community Center and the Ed Phillips Memorial Arena.

“The success of this huge undertaking is due to the excellent work of Northwest faculty and staff, district agriculture teachers, Northwest students and members of the Maryville community,” said Jackie Lacy, a Northwest instructor of agricultural sciences.
