Farm to Fork Poster Contest

Posted

Each year, the Bradley County Farm Bureau partners with the University of Tennessee Extension Office to teach lessons pertaining to agriculture. The students are challenged through the programs the 4-H leaders present to learn of the impact of agriculture in our daily lives. Lessons cover state standards for science and social studies. Students learn that our food, clothing, furniture, and many products that people don't typically associate with agriculture do in fact have an agricultural beginning. This year the fourth-grade poster contest was titled "Farm to Fork" and students got the chance to make a poster depicting this theme. The Bradley County Farm Bureau Women presented awards to first through third place, and an honorable mention award. Four posters were awarded monetary prizes, but many posters showed much thought and creativity. The students did an excellent job in their representation of the theme. Some of the winning posters are on display at the local Farm Bureau office. Present for the presentation were Dr. Billie Hamilton (women's chair of the Bradley County Farm Bureau) Karen Heifner and Carolyn Earnest.
