2002 STATE POSTER AND ESSAY CONTESTS ANNOUNCED

May 24, 2001

"MONTGOMERY, Ala." "Agriculture: We Can't Live Without It" is the theme for the 2002 poster and essay contests for Alabama students sponsored by the Farm-City Committee of Alabama and Alabama Ag in the Classroom. The basic message of the theme is that without agriculture, families would not have food, clothing or shelter, according to J. Paul Till, Chairman of the State Farm-City Committee.

Entries for both the poster and essay divisions should first be submitted to the County Farm-City Committee. Each county will then submit a first-place winner from each category to the State Farm-City Committee. Deadline for entry at the state level is Jan.1, 2002.

Entry in the poster contest is open to all students in kindergarten through sixth grade. A first-place winner in both the K-3 and 4-6 grade divisions will receive a $200 savings bond, and the student's classroom will receive $200 cash. The second-place winner in each division receives a $100 savings bond, and $100 cash goes to the student's classroom. Posters must be on display in a shopping mall, library, retail business or other places of public view during November 2001.

There also will be two divisions in the essay contest. Division I consists of grades 7-9, and Division II of grades 10-12. The first-place award in both divisions is a $500 savings bond and $250 cash to the student's school. The second-place award is a $300 savings bond, and the student's school receives $150 cash.

For further information and to obtain an entry form, contact your local Farm-City Committee or the State Farm-City Committee at 1-800-392-5705 extension 4410, by e-mail at ptill@alfafarmers.org or by mail at P.O. Box 11000, Montgomery, AL 36191.
