FRANKFORT, KY - The deadline to submit entries to the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s 2015 Poster and Essay Contest has been extended to Jan. 31 to accommodate students in schools whose schedules have been disrupted by recent winter weather, Agriculture Commissioner James Comer announced.

The contest theme is “Kentucky Agriculture: Growing the Next Generation of Farmers.”

Students are asked to submit either a poster, an essay, or a digital image based on the contest theme. Statewide poster and essay winners from each grade, kindergarten through 12th, will be chosen, and an overall digital winner will be selected. Cash prizes will be presented to the winners in March at the Kentucky Agriculture Day Celebration, and their work will be displayed at the Kentucky State Fair in August.

Entries must be postmarked no later than January 31, 2015. A completed entry form must be taped or glued to the back of each entry. The name of the teacher and school must accompany each entry. Winners will be notified on February 20, 2015.

The contest is conducted by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture in partnership with Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom Inc.

For more information, including complete contest rules and entry forms, go to or contact Agriculture Education Coordinator Jordan L. Spalding at (502) 782-4125 or
