In the Agricultural Sales event, high school students attempt to sell an agriculturally -related product to a pair of judges in a role-playing situation. They also participate in a customer-order-taking-extemporaneous situation where they are evaluated on their ability to fill an order to the judges' satisfaction. Participants also work together as a team to develop and present marketing strategies for a company; the judges play the role of the company owners.
Judges need not have an agricultural background. Judges will be asked to attend a training session before the contest. Novice judges will be paired with more experienced ones.
