ASSN OF EQUIPMENT MFGRS HONORS STUDENTS, PROMOTES CAREERS IN AG EQUIPMENT INDUSTRY
Association Of Equipment Manufacturers news release

Agricultural engineering students from Iowa State University received the first-place award for large student engineering branches at the 77th annual AEM Student Awards luncheon held in conjunction with the annual meeting of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).
AEM helped raise awareness of fulfilling careers in the agricultural equipment industry at a ceremony recognizing top student branches of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE).

AEM honored the latest winners of its agricultural engineering student awards at a luncheon July 14 in conjunction with ASABE's annual meeting in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The awards recognize ASABE university student branches with the most outstanding record of activities and achievements for the year. They are evaluated in areas including campus and community participation, organization, and quality of meetings and programs.

The student branches help undergraduates become more knowledgeable about their chosen profession. AEM initiated the awards in 1935 as part of its commitment to excellence in agricultural engineering education.

John Fisher, vice president technical affairs/safety for Alamo Group Inc., announced the winners of the ASABE tractor-safety logo design contest at the AEM Student Awards luncheon in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The 2014 AEM student award winners are:

Large Student Engineering Branches (Group A - 33 or more students): First Place: Iowa State University, Second Place: Texas A&M University
Smaller Student Engineering Branches (Group B - fewer than 33 students): First Place: University of Georgia, Second Place: University of Tennessee

The student awards luncheon, now in its 77th year, also provides opportunities for students to network with equipment manufacturers and learn more about the off-road equipment manufacturing industry.

A logo designed by Nick Schrader of Iowa State University won first place in the ASABE tractor-safety logo design contest. The logo will be part of a national ROPS promotion strategy for North America.
Tractor-safety Logo Design Winner Announced

During the luncheon, ASABE announced the winner of its student-focused logo design contest promoting tractor seatbelt and ROPS use. The contest was unveiled at last year's AEM student awards luncheon.

A logo designed by Nick Schrader of Iowa State University won first place in the ASABE tractor-safety logo design contest. The logo will be part of a national ROPS promotion strategy for North America.
First-place logo contest winner is Nick Schrader from Iowa State University. Second place went to Amelie Sirois Leclerc from McGill University, and third place went to Joel Parr from Iowa State University. All of the winners received a cash prize.

The first-place winning logo will be part of a national ROPS promotion strategy for North America that encourages tractor operators to wear seatbelts, raise foldable Rollover Protective Structures (ROPS), and install ROPS on older tractors.

When used with a seatbelt, ROPS are 99-percent effective in preventing injury or death in the event of an overturn, notes ASABE.
