Elizabeth Saatoff, 14, a Brainerd High School ninth-grader, recently attended the National Farmers Union convention in Washington, D.C.
While there she met with Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Rep. Jim Oberstar, D-Minn., and heard Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and other lawmakers.
Saatoff's grandmother works for the Minnesota Farmers Union and students sell yardsticks for the union at its Minnesota State Fair booth.
