Agriculture is the art and science of producing food and fiber for our local, national and world population. Food is the fuel of life; food production is essential to living. Many clothing and other items come 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.
