Alabama farmers are invited to dine with outstanding, award-winning young artists, writers and video producers from across the state during the Alabama Farm-City Awards Program and Luncheon April 6.
The luncheon is held in conjunction with the Alabama Farmers Federation’s Women’s Leadership Conference at the Wynfrey Hotel-Hyatt Regency in Birmingham. Cash awards and trophies will be presented to winners in state poster, essay and multimedia Farm-City contests.
Last fall, elementary, middle and high school students submitted contest entries centered on the theme “Agriculture: Stewards Of A Healthy Planet.”
Outstanding county Farm-City committees and volunteers will also be recognized in various categories, including Target Award for incorporating the 2016 theme, Scrapbook Award and Overall Best Farm-City Committee.
Tickets are $27 for adults and $20 for students. Student winners receive two complimentary tickets, with an additional free ticket for their teacher. Tickets are also included in the registration cost for Women’s Leadership Conference attendees.

Farm-City Week celebrations traditionally start the Friday before Thanksgiving and end on the holiday. The goal of Farm-City is to deepen understanding of the relationship between rural farmer and urban workers. Since 1955, Farm-City committees have hosted educational events and invited city folk to visit local farms for a first-hand look at how food is raised. Visit AlabamaFarmCity.org for more information.
