National Ag Day

How can I help reduce food waste?

To celebrate National Ag Day on March 22, 2022, this activity allows students to share How can they help reduce food waste. Students can draw pictures, explain, use photos, diagram or report on what they do to reduce food waste, describe a composting project, a school or class project they have been involved with, encourage their family to reduce food waste or share other things that tell how they are helping to reduce food waste.

Recognition: There are three grade-level groups:

  • PreK – 3rd grades
  • 4th- 8th grades
  • 9-12th grades

Through a random drawing, ten entries from each grade level group will receive a $10 Culvers card. All entries will be sent an Ag in the Classroom resource.


  • Open to Wisconsin students in Pre-K– 12th grade during the 2021-2022 school year.
  • Entries must be postmarked by March 31, 2022, or emailed by 11:59 p.m. that night. Hard copies should be sent to Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom, PO Box 5550, Madison, WI 53705.
  • Nothing identifying the student can be on the front. The form should be attached separately or put on the back of the entry.
  • All work must be original, done exclusively by the student, and without any copyrighted characters or clip art. No computer-generated art. Only include photos that have the permission of the student’s parent or guardian approving that it can be used for social media, press releases, articles and other uses.
