Northeast Agriculture Students to Present Final Projects

NORFOLK, Neb. – The Northeast Community College Agriculture Department invites the public to attend the “Issues in Agriculture” booth fair. Students enrolled in the Issues in Agriculture I course will be presenting on common issues and controversies in the agriculture industry.

The event will take place on Tuesday, Dec. 5, from 2 to 3 p.m. in Union 73 on the Norfolk campus. During the event, 21 students’ booths will be on display, providing education on their respective agricultural topics. 

Brandon Keller, agriculture instructor, said the event is designed as an ag literacy event to better educate the public about what takes place in the ag industry.

With one in two jobs in the Northeast Community College 20-county service region being directly related to the ag industry, the instructional team believes it is important for students to know how to present factual information about the industry in a non-bias manner. 

“This event gives students the opportunity to put their research skills on display and gives them practice in presenting information to a general audience for educational purposes,” Keller said. 

The event is the culmination of a semester-long course that has explored current events, controversy and professional development within the agriculture industry. It is designed to better position students for their internships and full-time employment in the agriculture industry. 

The event is being provided free of charge to the public, and the instructor team hopes members of the community will come and engage with students on their semester projects.
