Unleash the Power of Ag-Econ Knowledge!
The Agricultural Economic's Quiz Bowl team is back with a vengeance after a COVID-induced hiatus! We're sowing seeds of knowledge in agricultural economics and reaping the rewards in Jeopardy-style competitions against top-notch land-grant institutions like Texas A&M, Clemson, LSU, Kentucky, and Purdue.
But here's the twist: we're not just seeking your support; we're planting the seeds of economic growth and knowledge.
Last year, our passion and dedication took us to SAEA (Southern Agricultural Economics Association) in Oklahoma City and AAEA (American Agricultural Economics Association) in Washington D.C., where we showcased the brilliance of agricultural economics from Oklahoma State University. But this year, we're gearing up for something monumental!

Ag Economist Humor Zone:
We're not just number nerds; we're comedians, too! Why don't economists ever play hide and seek on the farm? Because good luck hiding when there's always someone tracking your supply and demand!
