Fayette County girl competes in Ohio Farm Bureau discussion meet
Brandi Fornshell of Washington C.H. was selected as one of four finalists to compete at the state level in this year’s Ohio Farm Bureau Discussion Meet.
The competition is an annual event aimed at showcasing Ohio’s agricultural professionals. Participants are given topics currently being discussed within the sphere of agriculture and they must expand upon them. Positive lexicon, clear articulation, and unambiguous knowledge of the subject are criteria in which participants are judged.
Fornshell excelled during the preliminary rounds and will now focus her attention to the State Finals to be held on June 29 at Deer Creek State Park. The winner will advance to the National Competition to be held in San Antonio, Texas.
Fornshell is a graduate of Wilmington College and works at Farm Credit Services of Mid America. She has been a Fayette County Farm Bureau member since 2012.
With more than 200,000 members, Ohio Farm Bureau is Ohio’s largest general farm organization, a federation of 87 county Farm Bureaus representing all 88 counties. Members include farmers, ranchers, agriculture professionals, and teachers that strive to maintain the viability of agriculture in Ohio.
