Dr. Curtis Bensch Received NACTA Judging and Student Service Award

Professor of Agronomy at Oklahoma Panhandle State University, Dr. Curtis Bensch, received the North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture award for Judging and Student Service. The NACTA Judging and Student Service Award is presented to a faculty member who has provided exceptional service to students, with special emphasis on those coaching competitive judging teams who have participated in the annual NACTA Judging Conference.

Shawna Tucker, Dean of the Science, Agriculture, and Nursing commented, “Dr. Curtis Bensch does an excellent job at promoting not only the OPSU Crops Judging Team, but also the entire University. This award is well deserved and I am so thankful to have Dr. Bensch as a colleague.”

Dr. Bensch advises approximately 30 agronomy majors and coaches several students on the NACTA team. Dr. Bensch has been involved with the NACTA Judging Conference for many years. OPSU Judging teams have participated in the crops contest every year, for the last 15 years. Under his leadership, the team placed fourth at the national contest in Spring 2021.
