The deadline for entries in the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s annual poster and essay contest has been extended to Feb. 11 because of weatherrelated school closings.
The contest is open to Kentucky students in kindergarten through the 12th grade. Students should submit a poster or an essay with the theme “Kentucky Proud: Your Family, Your Food, Your Future”.
Each winner will receive a $100 savings bond and will be honored at the Kentucky Agriculture Day luncheon in March in Frankfort. For more information, call Elizabeth McNulty at (502) 564-4983 or visit www.kyagr.com/ marketing.ageducation/ agday2011.htm.
