Agriculture Identification Contest

Students in Grades 3 - 12 Identify Ag Products

Contest Support Provided by Smith County Extension Education Association and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension in Smith County
Click to REGISTER STUDENTS - beginning October 27

General agriculture is the art and science of producing food and fiber for our local, national and world population. Food is the fuel of life, making food production essential to living. Most clothing we wear and paper we use comes from fibers produced in agriculture.

The purpose of this contest is for students to learn more about general agriculture; how food is grown, preserved, and gets to our tables: how food affects our health; and the growing and production of fibers used for clothing and paper that make our lives more comfortable.

There are 3 Levels of competition: Elementary (Grades 3-5), Middle School (Grades 6-8), and High School (Grades 9-12)

  • 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places are awarded in each level. Winners receive a medallion.
  • Elementary winners receive a cash award of $25.00, $15.00 or $10.00.
  • Middle School and High School winners are eligible to apply for Academic Rodeo Scholarships.
  • Participation Ribbons for those who do not place.
