Area youth compete in district agriculture contest at Northwest


More than 1,000 students from 53 northwest Missouri high schools competed April 5-6 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 at the University’s Agricultural Learning Center, R.T. Wright University Farm and Ed Phillips Memorial Arena.
