NDA sponsors poster contest

Nebraska

Nebraska Department of Agriculture Director Greg Ibach announced the opening of the annual NDA Agriculture Week in Nebraska Poster Contest. Entering its ninth year in 2012, the contest is open to all Nebraska youth in the first through sixth grades. This year's theme is, "Nebraska Agriculture: Feeding My Family."

"Nebraska's No. 1 industry is agriculture, and this poster contest gives our youth an opportunity to have a discussion about the importance of agriculture in their daily lives," said Ibach. "Each year we hear from teachers who have invited farmers and ranchers into their classrooms, had local FFA members talk with the younger students, and taken field trips to local farms to help their students learn more about agriculture and where their food comes from."

The entry deadline for the contest is Feb. 21. The winners will be announced during National Ag Week (March 4 to 10).

The contest is broken down into three age divisions: First and second grade students; third and fourth grade students; and fifth and sixth grade students.

Winning entries will be featured on the NDA web site and potentially in promotional materials and other publications.

Contest rules and official entry forms are available on-line at www.agr.ne.gov/kids. Contest questions can be directed to Christin Kamm at 402-471-6856 or by e-mail at christin.kamm@nebraska.gov.
