The winning artwork of Alabama students will be featured in the 2018 Alabama Farm-City calendar, which is now available for pre-order.
Each month includes students’ artwork depicting the 2016 Farm-City theme — Agriculture: Stewards of a Healthy Planet. The calendar also includes first place essays from sisters Marion and Kinley Bell, students at Hope Christian School in Shelby County, and a link to the first place multimedia presentation from Ty Rickard of Rehobeth High School in Houston County.
“Students work hard every year to earn recognition as a state winner in the Farm-City poster, essay and multimedia contests,” said Jeff Helms, Alabama Farm-City Committee chairman. “This calendar is a lasting way to promote the creative ways they show the importance of farming.”
