The Discussion Meet contest is designed to simulate a committee meeting where discussion and active participation are expected from each participant. This competition is evaluated on an exchange of ideas and information on a pre-determined topic. The judges are looking for the contestant that offers constructive criticism, cooperation, and communication while analyzing agricultural problems and developing solutions. The State Discussion Meet Preliminaries and Semi-Final rounds will take place at the YF&R Leadership Conference. The Final Four round will take place during the Florida Farm Bureau Annual Meeting.
