Pilsen student part of top team
Kansas State University sophomore Quinten Bina of Pilsen was part of a six-member crops judging team that won two national contests in November.
One was an American Royal-sponsored contest in Kansas City on Nov. 14 and one in Chicago Nov. 16. Bina was third high individual in both competitions. Team members were champions in all three categories — identifying 200 samples of plants and weeds, grading eight samples of grain, and analyzing 10 seed samples for contaminants.
KSU teams won national championships in 18 of the past 25 years.
