BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Some of the state's best young writers and artists were honored Monday during the State Farm-City awards luncheon in Birmingham. The students were recognized for their outstanding entries in the Farm-City poster and essay contests. The theme for both contests was "Pathways To Progress." Students qualified for the state awards by winning first place in their county contests.

In the poster contest, Logan Shelton of Randolph County took first place in the K-3rd Grade Division, while Glen Nolte of Calhoun County took top honors among fourth- to sixth-graders. Second place in K-3rd Grade Division went to Clare Fenelon of Monroe County. Sienna Templin of St. Clair County placed second for grades 4-6. First-place winners in the poster contest received $200, as did their schools, while second-place winners and their schools received $100 each.

Taking top honors in the essay contest were Ali Stringfellow of Mobile County for grades 7-9 and Aleem Ahmed of Lee County for grades 10-12. Hannah Muller of Coffee County placed second for grades 7-9, and Abbie Adcock of Randolph County was runner-up for grades 10-12.
