Bismarck, ND -- Anna Lemm-Wiegandt of South Fargo, N.D., won the NDFB Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet at the Farm and Ranch Conference, February 4-5, 2022 in Dickinson. The Discussion Meet is an exchange of ideas and information from participants on a predetermined topic.
Lemm-Wiegandt took home a Polaris four-wheeler and will compete at the 2023 AFBF Discussion Meet in San Juan, Puerto Rico, next January.
“I started competing in discussion meets as a collegiate Farm Bureau member when I attended NDSU,” said Lemm-Wiegandt. “Discussion meets can take a lot of work to prepare for, but they are worth it to me because of the communication skills I learn each time I participate.”
Lemm-Wiegandt grew up on a farm just south of Hillsboro, N.D. and currently works for AgCountry Farm Credit Services as a Marketing Content Specialist. She also has her own photography business.
“Being involved in Farm Bureau has given me so many opportunities that I am very grateful for,” said Lemm-Wiegandt. “I’m looking forward to learning even more public speaking skills as I prepare for the national discussion meet."
The other finalists were Austin Visser from Reeder, N.D., Claire Zumbach from New York (attending Dickinson State University), and Chris Gartner from Sidney, Mont.
