MCHS students among winners of 2022 KDA Poster and Essay Contest
By Kirk Hilbrecht
Frankfort, KY - The winners of the Kentucky Department of Agriculture's annual Poster and Essay Contest were announced during an awards ceremony on Friday at Wild Health Field in Lexington. The theme of the contest, "Kentucky Agriculture Sustains Me," reflected on the importance of farmers.
Among the essay winners were Metcalfe County High School 10th grader Emily Shaw and Metcalfe County High School Senior Robert Walker.
"These students did an excellent job of showcasing their artist skills, while also embracing the important role of today's farmers," Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles said. "Congratulations to each of these winners who so vividly depicted in art and writing how the entire world should appreciate what our agriculture producers do for us."
The KDA received 637 entries, including 481 posters. Each winning entry received a $100 award from Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom, and will be displayed at the 2022 Kentucky State Fair in August in Louisville.
The digital winner, which includes photos or original digital artwork, is sixth-grader Sylvia Mason of Noe Middle School in Louisville, Kentucky. She is the daughter of Victoria Mason.
