NDA sponsors Agriculture Week poster contest
Nebraska Department of Agriculture Director Greg Ibach announced the beginning of the 10th annual NDA Agriculture Week in Nebraska Poster Contest. The contest is open to all Nebraska youth currently in first through sixth grades. This year's theme is "Nebraska Agriculture: What Farmers Do."
"Agriculture is our state's No. 1 industry, and it is important for our youth to understand the role farmers and ranchers play in our everyday lives" said Ibach. "This contest gives teachers a prime opportunity to discuss agriculture and help students better understand where their food comes from."
The entry deadline for the contest is March 1. The winners will be announced during National Ag Week (March 17 to 23).
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 website and potentially in promotional materials and other publications.
