MORGANTOWN — Agriculture in West Virginia. What does that mean to a fourth grader?
Students at Eastwood, Mason-Dixon, Brookhaven, and Covenant Christian schools did their best to express their ideas in the West Virginia Farm Bureau annual poster contest. Colorful posters featured silos, barns, chickens and windmills. Some even showed the hilly farmland of Monongalia County.
Olivia Chisler, from Mason-Dixon Elementary, was the first-place winner and her poster will go on to compete against other winning posters from across the state.
The second-place winner, Bailey Willard, and the third-place winner, Alexis Stiles, were also from Mason-Dixon Elementary.
The Monongalia County Farm Bureau recognized this year’s winners with art supplies, monetary awards and a reception for students and their families at the May Farm Bureau meeting
Representing more than 24,000 members, the West Virginia Farm Bureau was founded in 1919 to provide leadership, education, information, training and economic services to county farm bureaus to enhance the quality of life for its members.
