The Ohio Department of Agriculture, Ohio Farm Bureau, Ohio State Fair and the buckeye state's agricultural
commodity groups are again sponsoring the "Agriculture is Cool" program at the Ohio State Fair complete with
exciting interactive stations like the opportunity to milk a life-like cow!
There are several great ways to participate.
- Ag is Cool Creative Expression competition
Students K-12 can flex their imagination by creating agricultural works of art, videos and more
(and yes, prizes are involved)!
- Ag is Cool for fourth graders
To see what makes agriculture cool, students in the fourth grade during the 2012-2013 academic year and a chaperone can attend the Fair any one day for free simply by presenting their report card at the entry gate. Better yet? Participants can win a $500 scholarship by writing an essay about what they learned.
- Ag is Cool for Teachers
Fourth grade teachers can register for free admission to the fair and have the opportunity to win a field trip for their class by participating in the Ag is Cool program.
