Cooper Galt, Dalton Sorensen, Seth Worthington and Corbin Redd competed in livestock judging and placed 13th out of 50 teams, one from each state. Kaitlin Hallam and Brooke Voorhees were both selected as one of 25 finalists nationwide in their areas for the Agriscience Fair competition. Brooke place 13th overall for her research regarding feed and weight gain in hogs, and Kaitlin was awarded 2nd place in the nation for her research on the effects of gender separation on the rate of gain in turkeys.
