Two team projects from the U of A Biological and Agricultural Engineering program took first and second place in the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers Gunlogson Environmental Design Student Competition.
The biological engineering Senior Capstone project coordinator is G. Scott Osborn. 
The purpose of the society's open Gunlogson competition is to encourage undergraduate students to participate in the design of a relevant engineering project and to provide an arena of professional competition for environmentally and biologically related design projects.
The national society competition consists of two parts:
The first place team received $1,250, and the second place team received $1,000 at the society's Annual International Meeting in Houston on July 20.
The winning teams were:
First place
Nathan Bowman, Harrison Davis, Juliana Newman and Noah Olson
