IOWA DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE RECOGNIZES STUDENTS FOR PROVIDING ARTWORK FOR “FROM THE FARM TO YOU” CALENDAR

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey recognized thirteen students from Iowa at the State Fair for providing the artwork that appears in the “From the Farm to You” calendar.  The calendar was distributed to fairgoers by the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship and emphasizes the connection between the production of Iowa’s farmers and the products used by people every day

“Iowa’s rich soil and vast landscape has made Iowa one of the most productive areas for food and livestock production in the world,” Northey said.  “These students are helping showcase Iowa agriculture and breakdown the idea that food comes from grocery stores, not from farms.  It is great to be able to recognize them at the State Fair for their hard work and creativity.” 

Northey presented the students with a certificate during the State Fair recognizing their selection.  The winners of the contest are listed below.  Photos from the presentation can be found at https://www.flickr.com/photos/iowaagriculture/albums/72157687852816266 . Also, an electronic version of the calendar can be seen at http://www.iowaagriculture.gov/press/pdfs/2017/FarmToYouCalendar2017.pdf.  

Students can submit drawings to be considered for inclusion in the calendar next year.  Pictures should be drawn using only black lines on plain white paper, 8 ½ by 11 inches.  The pictures should not be colored.  They can be submitted to the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Calendar Kids, 502 E. 9th St., Des Moines, IA 50319.
