Edgefield County residents, Nicole Jackson, Abbie Miller and Parker Wilkes,  were among a select group of high school juniors and seniors from around the state who recently participated in the 2013 South Carolina Farm Bureau (SCFB) Youth Leadership Conference.

The annual conference was held on the campus of Newberry College and featured a number of workshops focused on developing leadership and team building along with programs that foster understanding and awareness of agriculture and entrepreneurship. The students took part in a group project where they were required to develop a business plan based on a South Carolina commodity. Each group was required to present its final project to a panel of judges, and the winning team was awarded a cash prize.
