[May 19, 2012]  This week the Logan County Board recognized two youth teams for winning in state-level competition. The board adopted resolutions honoring the Hartem FFA ag issues debate team and Connor Law Office bowling team

FFA debate team

Hartsburg-Emden's Future Farmers of America ag issues debate team won the state competition.

The team's topic on diesel emission regulations focused primarily on farm equipment, but their in-depth studies created awareness of environmental
impact where fossil fuels are used in many other fields as well.

Coach Betsy Pech complimented the students not only for their delivery, but also for the in-depth research they conducted into diesel emissions and the impact on the environment. It was the toughest topic she has had a team cover.

In October the team will represent the Illinois FFA at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Ind.

The team consists of Erin Rankin, Noah Cross, Cole Baker, Alicia Clark, Willow Krumwiede and Natalie Nowantney.
