Ag Day Poster Contest

January TBD, 2017. 

3rd - 8th grades

Agricenter International, in conjunction with National Ag Day, celebrates Agriculture as a long standing industry that has helped to structure the landscape of our great nation.

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.

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.

Each year a different topic is given to students for their interpretation through their art. The topic and rules are placed on Agricenter’s website for teachers and students each January.
