Are you a middle school student who likes to create art or do you know one who does? Then check out the 2023 Georgia Farm Bureau Middle School Bookmark Contest! The state winner will receive $150 and 10 district winners will each receive $100.
Coffee County Farm Bureau encourages students to enter the contest. The winner of the Coffee County Farm Bureau Bookmark Contest will receive $100, the second place winner will receive $75 and third place will receive $50.
The contest is open to all public, private and homeschool students in 6th, 7th and 8th grades. Participating students will be given a blank bookmark and asked to draw a picture that depicts some aspect of Georgia agriculture. Students may use crayons, markers or colored pencils to create their bookmark that illustrates agriculture.
Only one entry per person. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Previous state winners are not eligible to enter. Students may enter the contest in the county in which they live or attend school but not both counties.
Interested students or teachers should contact the Coffee County Farm Bureau for an official entry form and contest rules at 912-384-4412. All entries must be received at the Coffee Farm Bureau office by February 17, 2023.
“The purpose of the Farm Bureau Art Contest is to encourage students to creatively explore Georgia agriculture and increase their knowledge of the contributions it makes to our lives. Georgia farmers produce a wide variety of crops and livestock including poultry, beef cattle, dairy, cotton, peanuts, timber, pecans, blueberries and many other fruits and vegetables,” said Mary Elizabeth Pridgen County Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee Chairman.
Drawings will be judged on 1) how well the artwork represents modern agriculture found in Coffee County or Georgia and 2) artistic merit. For more information about the contest visit www.gfb.ag/contests. Students and teachers may visit https://gfb.ag/video to view a video about Georgia agriculture and https://gfb.ag/UGA22agsnapshots to access info about Georgia agriculture.
The Coffee County Farm Bureau Bookmark Contest winner will be entered in the Georgia Farm Bureau Tenth District competition. All entries must be officially submitted by the Coffee County Farm Bureau to the GFB contest.
All submitted artwork must be original and becomes the property of Georgia Farm Bureau once submitted. GFB may use artwork from the contest on various products distributed or sold by the organization to promote agriculture.
