K.K. Barnes Student Paper Awards Competition
The objective of the K. K. Barnes Student Paper Awards Competition is to encourage undergraduate students in the preparation of better technical papers on subjects in the agricultural, food or biological engineering field. It is intended as a special inducement to supplement the training provided in the undergraduate curriculum by providing early practice in a type of performance required of professionals in the work in which they will later engage.
The competition consists of two parts:a Written Competition and an Oral Competition. Authors of the top three written papers are invited to attend the ASABE Annual Meeting to participate in the oral competition.
