South Dakota Student Wins National Ag Day Essay Contest

2/15/2017 3:31:00 PM/Categories: General News, Today's Top 5, People in Ag, National News

The Agriculture Council of America has announced the winners of the 2017 National Ag Day video and written essay contest winners. The winners were chosen based on the 2017 Theme: Agriculture: Food for Life.

Bridger Gordon from Whitewood, South Dakota, receives a $1,000 prize and travel to Washington, D.C., for recognition at the National Press Club on March 21, 2017. During this event, he will have the opportunity to read the winning essay as well as join with industry representatives and media. Video essay winner, Hadassah McKinley from Bella Vista, California wins a $1,000 prize. Both entries can be viewed online at https://www.agday.org/2017-contest-winners.

The theme presented an opportunity for students to address how the agriculture industry is working to provide for a growing population. Entrants chose to either write an essay or create a video focusing on how today's growers are overcoming challenges to provide a safe, stable food supply for the ever-changing future.

"CHS enthusiastically supports rural youth and is proud to showcase their ideas and initiative," says Annette Degnan, marketing communications director, CHS Inc., one of this year's essay contest sponsors. "The essay and video contests provide the perfect platform for their visions and dreams to be shared with a broader audience."

This is the 44th anniversary of National Ag Day. The goal of the ACA is to provide a spotlight on agriculture and the food and fiber industry. The ACA not only helps consumers understand how food and fiber products are produced, but also brings people together to celebrate accomplishments in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.
