The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) will present an interactive game called Think'n with Lincoln at its exhibit in Decatur, Illinois early next month during the Farm Progress Show, the biggest outdoor farm show in the country.

The ISA exhibit encompasses the theme of Illinois soy growers "A legacy of leadership," during the Farm Progress Show, taking place September 1-3. The show will hosts hundreds of exhibitors, from growers to farm equipment manufacturers.

"We're excited about this exhibit because it truly celebrates farmers - particularly Illinois soybean growers," said Ron Moore, chairman of the ISA board. "It's a tribute to the hard work, dedication and contributions farmers have made to this country and our world."

The Farm Progress show exhibit, which is funded in part by the soybean checkoff, also acknowledges soybean growers as leaders in their industry. Displays exemplify Illinois soybean growers' roles in agricultural production, research and education.

Think'n with Lincoln, hosted by "Abe Lincoln" himself, will give show-goers an opportunity to win prizes including a fish tank with live catfish. The game consists of trivia questions related to the famous Illinois native and the 200th anniversary of his birth.
