Wilcox wins Farm Bureau Discussion Meet
Clint Wilcox of Fairview was named the 2012 Young Farmers and Ranchers Discussion Meet winner at the Oklahoma Farm Bureau 71st Annual Meeting Nov. 9, in Oklahoma City.
Wilcox competed against three other participants in four rounds of debate-style discussion where performance is evaluated on the exchange of ideas and information on pre-determined topics. Participants are judged on their ability to offer constructive criticism, cooperation and communication while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions.
As the state discussion meet winner, Wilcox received an iPad package and the opportunity to compete in the national discussion meet contest at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention Jan. 13-16, in Nashville, Tenn. The winner of that competition will be able to choose between a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado or 2013 GMC Sierra, courtesy of GM, and paid registration to the 2013 YF&R Leadership Conference in Phoenix, Ariz., February 8-11. Three national runners-up will receive a Case IH Farmall 55A, courtesy of Case IH, a $2,500 cash prize and STIHL Farm Boss, courtesy of STIHL.
Wilcox and his wife, Jessica, raise wheat, canola and cattle on their farm near Fairview.
