As part of Kansas Farm Bureau's annual Collegiate Chapter of Excellence Awards program, the Colby Community College chapter has been named the 2022 Kansas Collegiate Farm Bureau Chapter of the Year.

The prize rewards chapters that demonstrate excellence within the three pillars of Kansas Farm Bureau: Advocacy, Education, and Service.

The CCC chapter has been active over the recent academic year. They taught ag lessons to other students with exhibits in the cafeteria during lunch hour, shared ag experiences with the Colby After School Program, assisted with the Halloween N' Horses event at the college farm, and collected food donations during Trick-or-Treat So Others Can Eat.

The group also attended the Kansas Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers conference and participated in the collegiate quiz bowl. They helped with the CCC ag department's highway cleanups and organized the annual Ag Olympics at the farm, an event open to all students. Additionally, the chapter hosted a young ag professionals career panel and invited Kansas Farm Bureau and Farm Bureau Financial Services presenters to campus.

As part of the award, the CCC chapter will own a traveling trophy for the next year and receive $175 to use towards upcoming events.
