YF&R Discussion Meet winner announced

Sarah Domek of Wibaux, Mont. was named the Young Farmer and Rancher Discussion Meet winner, during the final round of competition at the North Dakota Farm Bureau 71st annual meeting, November 22-23 at the Ramkota, Bismarck.

To win the title, Domek competed in two rounds of the Discussion Meet at last winter’s YF&R-sponsored Leadership Conference and a taped video interview. From there, finalists were chosen. The finalists competed at the NDFB Annual Meeting for a chance to go on to represent North Dakota at the national Discussion Meet to be held at the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, this January.

The Discussion Meet brings contestants together to participate in a group discussion that simulates a committee meeting. The topic for the final was, “How do we encourage young farmers and ranchers to continue to be involved in Farm Bureau? How can young producers lead even if they don’t hold elected positions on boards?"

Domek and her husband, Seth, raise Charolais cattle and have one child. Domek is also a teacher at the Beach School. She is a Jamestown native and graduated from Jamestown College in 2009. She received her master's degree in education from Montana State University.

Other finalists in the competition were John Brekker of Rutland and Nevada Turbiville of Rhame.
