The Christian County Farm Bureau is working to improve ag awareness with a fun project for third and fourth graders. Students will have the opportunity to enter a coloring contest, where the winner will have their agriculture related picture featured on a reusable canvas bag that will be handed out during local farmers markets this summer.

 

The Christian County Farm Bureau’s Melissa McMillan and Matt Heberling appeared on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show to help spread the word for the contest. The winning entry to the contest will be featured on the bags that will be handed out at farmers markets in June.

 

 

The contest is a way to help spread awareness for agriculture, and is open to any third or fourth grade student.

 

 

The goal for the project is to have the bags at local farmers markets the morning of Saturday, June 3rd.
