Essay Contest Lessons & Activities

Right This Very Minute

This year’s essay contest topic is “How has Wisconsin agriculture affected your life today?” Our 2020 Book of the Year is “Right this very minute” by Lisl Detlefsen.

The book and essay topic allow students to explore how agriculture affects us each day as we eat, the clothes we wear, careers around us, how it impacts the area they live in (i.e. jobs, businesses, farms, processors), and other topics.
