Yesterday was National Teach Ag Day, and in celebration Nebraska Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture announced a contest for Nebraska classrooms to win a trip to a farm or ranch!
Agriculture is a staple of Nebraska’s economy accounting for one in four jobs across our state. But with a growing distance between farmers and ranchers to students, an understanding of the impact of agriculture is becoming a major issue.
The Day @ the Farm Contest is designed to educate students about the importance of agriculture in their lives no matter where they live. Through the contest, Nebraska Farm Bureau hopes to teach students that their food, fuel and clothing come from agriculture.
Teachers and their classrooms, grades K-12, are invited to submit a video by Nov. 15 answering the question – What would your life be like without Nebraska Agriculture? Three classrooms will be selected as grand prize winners from across the state. Additional rules and contest information is outlined here >>
Winning classrooms will receive an all expense paid field trip to farms or ranches near their school as well as a surprise lunch congratulating them as a grand prize winner.
