Lego video wins 2017 National Ag Day video essay
A California student has won the 2017 National Ag Day video contest with a unique Lego clip focusing on the 2017 Theme — Agriculture: Food for Life.
The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) recently announced Hadassah McKinley from Bella Vista, California won the $1,000 prize for her video.
This year’s 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.
The 44th National Ag Day will be held March 21, 2017. ACA will host major events in the nation’s capital including a breakfast event at the National Press Club as well as a Taste of Agriculture Celebration on the Hill. Additionally, the ACA will bring approximately 100 college students to Washington to deliver the message of Ag Day.
National Agriculture Day marks a nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. A number of producers, agricultural associations, corporations, students, and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.
