A drawing contest for grades 4 and 5 is now being held for students in Hettinger County.
Contestants are asked to draw a family meal and identify where the food on the table comes from, such as milk from a dairy cow.
Three of the best drawings in each grade will receive cash prizes. After being judged in the county, all of the entries will be forwarded to the state Farm Bureau office for judging where a winner from each grade will be selected. The two winning artists will receive $50.00 and they will be announced during Farm Bureau Week.
Hettinger County Farm Bureau is celebrating North Dakota Farm Bureau Week on March 10-16, 2019. As Americans, we have access to an abundance of safe and affordable food choices. The shelves in the grocery stores are filled with options and choices are taken seriously.
“Agriculture is the largest and most renewable economic sector of the state’s economy. North Dakota Farm Bureau recognizes and promotes all of the efforts by the farmers and ranchers in the state for what they produce for our tables,” said Carson Kouba of Regent who is president of Hettinger County Farm Bureau.
Forms have been sent to the teachers in New England and Mott/Regent Public Schools. Ask your teacher for a form if you didn’t get one. Your full name and address, grade and phone number should be on the back of each entry.
All entries should be sent to Marlene Kouba, 6160 105th Ave SW, Regent, ND 58650, by February 28. All county participants will receive a colorful personalized certificate for their efforts. A student in Mott/Regent won for her grade last year.
North Dakota Farm Bureau is the most effective general farm and ranch organization in the state with more than 27,000 member families and 50 organized county Farm Bureaus.
