Agricultural Product Identification contest provides youth the ability to further their knowledge and skills when evaluating ag products grown in Texas. For the Ag Product ID contest, 20 Texas agricultural products are selected and exhibited at separate stations. Contestants select the correct identification of each product from four possible answers. Each station also has one multiple choice question pertaining to the product on display. Questions are general to the industry that produced the product, (i.e. Texas’ national ranking, economic impact to Texas, general nutrition content, region of production) and specific to the individual product that is on display (i.e. cooking method, use, growing season, specific nutrition of the cut or variety).
Contestants are given 40 seconds at each station to answer the two questions about the product. Products range from garlic and apples to rib eye and pork. Contestants will use a scantron to answer questions.
