KY Dept. of Agriculture Holding Poster and Essay Contest

Kentucky students have until April 7 to submit original works to answer the question, “How do Kentucky farmers feed the hungry?” as part of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's 17th annual Poster and Essay Contest.

The contest is also hosted by Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom.

“In a state with such abundance and such a rich agricultural heritage as Kentucky, no one should have to wonder where their next meal is coming from,” Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said. “This contest will enable Kentucky school children to learn how our farmers are working to reduce the hunger problem in Kentucky.”

Students in kindergarten through 12th grade may produce a poster, an essay, or a digital image on the theme. Statewide poster and essay winners from each grade will be chosen, and an overall digital winner will be selected.

Each statewide grade winner and the digital art winner will receive a $100 award.

Entries should be postmarked by Friday, April 7 and mailed to the following address:

Kentucky Department of Agriculture
111 Corporate Dr.
Frankfort, KY 40601

A completed entry form must be taped or glued to the back of each entry. A completed teacher form must accompany all posters and essays from the teacher's class. Winners will be notified by May 1.
