Border Wars @ Whitney Presentation Hall and the Agriculture and Natural Science Center at Sheridan College
Mar 4 @ 8:00 am – 2:30 pm

Sheridan College will host their 12th annual “Border Wars” on Tuesday and registrations to compete are due tomorrow. More than 100 high school students from Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota are expected to compete in one of two categories: agricultural sales or environmental and natural resources. Prizes will be awarded to the top team from each state in each contest. Scholarships and prizes will also be awarded to the top individuals in each contest. The events are similar to what the students will compete in during their respective state Future Farmers of America competitions later this spring so the local competition is a way for students to prepare. In the Ag Sales event, students will have to sell an agricultural product which they have brought with them to an official judge. Students will be judged on advertising campaigns, sales presentation, customer service and how well they solve team problems. SC instructor Chuck Holloway will direct this event and SC faculty and agriculture students will judge the competition. The Environmental and Natural resources competition will test students on their ability to identify wildlife, plants and use field sampling equipment while solving natural resource and environmental concerns in written and oral presentations as individuals or teams. SC instructor Keith Klement will head up this competition. The community is invited to attend the event from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday in the Whitney Presentation Hall and the Agriculture and Natural Science Center at Sheridan College. For more information or to register by emailing entries to dostrowski@sheridan.edu or calling 674-6446 extension 3500. The college is located at 3059 Coffeen Ave.
