DEC. 3, 2004--The UW-River Falls agricultural education quiz bowl team
competed against 16 other teams to claim first place at the National Collegiate
Agricultural Education Conference held in October. The contest and conference
was held in conjunction with the National FFA Convention in Louisville,
The first place team consisted of four agricultural education majors.
Sonja Stoterau, a senior from Eagle Bend, Minn., Crystal Heath, a senior
from Whitehall, Wis., Andrew Klein, a senior from South Haven, Minn.,
and Sandra Miskowiak, a junior from Wausau, Wis. competed in three separate
rounds of competition.
The competition features questions about technical agriculture, professional
education and agricultural education organizations. This year the specific
questions within those categories dealt with animal science, foundations
in agriculture and the National FFA Organization.
In addition to competing, the UW-RF students also organized the National
Collegiate Agricultural Education Conference and the Conclave for Alpha
Tau Alpha--the national professional honorary agricultural education fraternity.
The only UW school to participate in the conference, the UW-RF team also
received the A.W. Nolan Memorial Leadership Award for its leadership,
professional development and communications efforts.
