March - April: Agricultural Poster Contest in the Five Town Schools

Students in the 3rd through 12th grades in the towns of Camden, Rockport, Lincolnville, Hope, and Appleton are eligible.

A great day to start the Agricultural Poster Contest is on National Ag Day, March 18, to celebrate the importance of agriculture in our lives. The theme for the Poster Contest this year is “Where does food come from - highlighting a local farm and the products they produce,” so you could discuss a number of local farms in your area and use the list provided.

First and second place winners in four different grade divisions are chosen by local judges and prizes awarded. Aldermere Farm will display all the posters at its Calf Unveiling Day event on Saturday May 9, and posters returned to students thereafter.

All posters will be picked up on Thursday April 16.

Contact hbaker@mcht.org or call 236-2739 for more information.
