Essay Contest

Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom offers an annual essay contest for fourth and fifth-grade students. Each year the topic has specific lesson plans, activities and other resources that teachers, volunteers and homeschool parents can use to teach about Wisconsin agriculture.

Information on the 2019-20 Essasy Contest and Book of the Year will be announced soon. Stay tuned!

2020 Contest Information

This year's essay contest topic is, "How has Wisconsin agriculture affected your life today?" This essay topic is a natural tie with the 2020 Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom Book of the Year Right This Very Minute. The book and essay contest allow students to explore how agriculture affects us each day as we eat, choose the clothes we will wear and the careers around us.

Entry deadline: Entries must be postmarked by April 1, 2020. Entries must be sent to your county Ag in the Classroom coordinator.
