NDA sponsors sixth annual poster contest


The Nebraska Department of Agriculture Jan. 12 announced the theme for the sixth annual Nebraska Department of Agriculture--Agriculture Week in Nebraska Poster Contest. The contest is open to all Nebraska students in the first through sixth grades. This year's theme is "Nebraska Agriculture: Growing the Good Life."

"Agriculture is our state's number one industry, and this poster contest allows teachers and students an opportunity to have an open discussion about agriculture in their classrooms," said NDA Director Greg Ibach. "We've learned that this contest has spurred teachers to invite farmers and ranchers into their classrooms, allowing students to ask questions and get more involved. Some teachers have even incorporated field trips to local farms as a way to help their students learn more about agriculture."

The entry deadline for the contest is March 2, with the winners announced during National Agriculture Week (March 15 to 21).

The contest is broken down into three separate age groups:

--First and second grade students

--Third and fourth grade students

--Fifth and sixth grade students

The winning entries will be featured on the NDA website, as well as in promotional materials and other publications.

"We encourage teachers, parents, 4-H, and FFA members to get involved in helping to educate Nebraska's youth about the importance of the agricultural industry in our state and for those youth to participate in this year's contest," said Director Ibach.

Contest rules, official entry forms, and additional information is available by calling Christin Kamm at 402-471-6856, by e-mailing christin.kamm@nebraska.gov, or by logging into the "Kids Page" located on the NDA homepage at www.agr.ne.gov.
