COLUMBUS - Caroline Weihl of Perrysburg recently represented Ohio in the national Collegiate Discussion Meet, a contest promoted by the Young Farmers and Ranchers program of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
The Ohio Farm Bureau Federation sponsored her participation in the contest at the recent YF&R Leadership Conference in Virginia Beach, Va., along with John Schoenhals from Archbold. Both were awarded $250 scholarships from AFBF.
The Collegiate Discussion Meet simulates a committee meeting and requires contestants to demonstrate leadership skills and knowledge of issues.

Schoenhals also attends Ohio State University.
"We're very proud of John and Caroline; they represented Ohio very well and we hope this experience will help them become leaders in Ohio's agricultural community," said Sandy Kuhn, Ohio Farm Bureau director, education and industry outreach.
