The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) and Meredith Agrimedia encouraged young artists to celebrate modern agriculture through the 4th annual National Ag Day Poster Art Contest. A winning original piece of art has been chosen as the Official National Ag Day poster.
Congratulations to Emily Eibs, University of Wisconsin-Stout, for being selected the winner of the contest. Eibs was selected among many young artists in the competition. The contest theme was Agriculture: Stewards of a Healthy Planet.
In addition, his artwork and a profile of Eibs will be prominently featured in Successful Farming magazine and Ag Day correspondence. She will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Meredith Agrimedia. Media releases will also be sent to all Ag Day sponsors and supporters. The original artwork will be on display in a public location.
