To celebrate the men and women who work to provide our national bounty, Agricenter established the “Ag Day” Poster Contest. This contest is held in honor of Agriculture and to recognize students in Shelby County who best describe Agriculture through their artwork on a given subject or theme. Few people realize that 1/10 of 1% of agricultural producers are producing 80% of the food and fiber we consume and use daily.

“Agriculture: Food for Life” has been chosen as the theme for 2017. With this poster contest, we are asking students to display how Agriculture is important to us and our country. Students can demonstrate how Agriculture has provided food for their lives in their poster. The theme words do not need to be on the poster.  

Students are divided into three divisions. The divisions are Third-Fourth grade, Fifth-Sixth grade, and Seventh-Eighth grade. The first place winners of each division are awarded $100, the second place winners $50, and the third place winners $25. The first place winner's teacher also receives a $50 check.

The winners and their family are honored with a luncheon at Agricenter. The winning posters are framed and displayed in Agricenter for one year. In the past three years, the posters have traveled to Nashville to hang in the War Memorial Building in honor of National Ag Week.
