Quarles announces winners of KDA poster and essay contest
Statewide winners include Lane Kelsay, a fifth grader at Adair County Elementary
By Sean Southard
Frankfort, KY - Kentucky Agriculture Commissioner Dr. Ryan Quarles announced the winners of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's annual Poster and Essay Contest. The theme of the 2020 contest was "Kentucky Farmers: Ready, Set, Grow."
"Congratulations to each of these winners, who so vividly depicted in art and writing how our farmers all across the state are helping to grow the safest, most abundant food supply in the world," Commissioner Quarles said. "These submissions are welcome reminders of how important agriculture is, even in a global pandemic."
The Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) usually honors the winners at an awards ceremony before a Lexington Legends baseball game. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, the department is postponing the in-person awards ceremony indefinitely.
The KDA received 275 entries, including 179 posters. Each winning entry will receive a $100 award from Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom, and will be displayed at the 2020 Kentucky State Fair in August in Louisville.
The digital winner, which includes photos or original digital artwork, was fifth-grader Anna Probus of Westside Elementary in Cynthiana, Kentucky. Her teacher was Laura Stacy.
