High School Discussion Meet

Clinton High School 

Thursday, November 17th at 5:00pm


Participating Counties: Newberry, Laurens, Union, Cherokee, Spartanburg, Greenville, Pickens, Oconee, Anderson, Abbeville, Greenwood, Saluda, McCormick 

Farm Bureau’s strength depends on its members’ ability to analyze agricultural issues and decide on solutions that best meet their needs. The High School Discussion Meet is an activity designed to build these crucial skills in young, active leaders in agriculture on the high school level. By participating, members build basic discussion skills, develop a keen understanding of important agricultural issues and explore how groups can pool knowledge to reach consensus and solve problems.

As a leadership training and self-improvement activity, the Discussion Meet experience will:

  • Stimulate logical thinking and a desire for accurate information;
  • Promote a concise and direct manner of speaking;
  • Improve the ability to listen;
  • Aid the participant in overcoming timidity or stage fright;
  • Assist the individual in the practice of giving and receiving criticism in a helpful manner;
  • Teach the value of compromise; and develop leaders for effective problem solving through group discussion.

SCFB encourages High School students interested in agriculture to register for the Discussion Meet and enjoy the challenge and experience.
