The Agricultural Communications team from Fort Hays State University recorded a top-four finish at the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture Judging Conference earlier this month.

FHSU's four-person team, under the direction of livestock judging Coach Garrett Steede, was part of a group of 800 collegiate agriculture students from 24 states that competed in the three-day event in Moline, Ill.

FHSU's ag communications team placed fourth with its public relations plan to increase membership and activity for the American Farm Bureau Federation.

Members of the team were Kristin DePriest, Clearwater junior; Faith Edwards, Winona sophomore; Kacey Rieger, Powhattan junior; and Mollie Ringleman, Imperial, Neb., junior.

Other contests ranged from crops and soils judging and livestock judging to agricultural business.

The FHSU contingent had the opportunity to tour the John Deere World Headquarters, visit the networking fair and participate in a food packaging service project where more than 49,000 meals were packaged.
