Agricenter Ag Day Celebration

Typically, Agricenter educates over 10,000 students each year about the importance of agriculture. We are looking forward to another great opportunity in 2024 to have our Agricenter Ag Day Celebration and award our winners for the Art Contest. 

The theme for 2024 is “Agriculture: Powering the Future” This is an opportunity for students to learn about Agriculture as a leading industry and how it can impact our lives. Students can think about “What role does agriculture play in our future lives.” Some topics to discuss with the students to help with ideas about the theme are how corn and soybeans are used to fuel our cars, fresh fruits and vegetables power our bodies, solar is created to power our homes, and technology such as drones are advancing agriculture. This year the Art Contest is open to Shelby, Tipton, Fayette County in Tennessee, Crittenden County, Arkansas and Desoto County in Mississippi. Art entries are due to Agricenter International by Friday, March 15, 2024. There are cash prizes for both winning students and TEACHERS of winning students.
