ASABE Be Inspired video competition

Inspiration can come from a variety of places. Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering (ABE) students Alena Whitaker, a senior in Biological Systems Engineering (BSE); Mike Sserunjogi, graduate student in ABE; and Garrett Onstot, a Uganda service learner, participated the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE) one-minute video challenge. Students were tasked with creating a video discussing what inspires them to be an agricultural or biological systems engineer. Top prize will receive $3,000, second place will receive $2,000 and third will receive $1,000. Winners will be announced between Feb. 5 and Feb. 8.

Iowa State’s video examines the impact of precision technology to reduce fertilizer use and help producers use fewer inputs to help feed a growing population. ABE students are using innovation to create a more sustainable future and make every seed count. To view the video entry, click here.
