Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom is encouraging students in Pre-K through 12th grade to participate in a sticker designing activity to celebrate National Ag Day. National Ag Day will be celebrated nationwide on March 23. Due to anticipated COVID-19 restrictions many celebrations and activities are being planned virtually.
The theme for Ag Day 2021 is “Food brings everyone to the table.” Students are asked to draw a picture related to this theme to be used on a sticker sheet. The drawings can portray different kinds of foods the student likes; what farmers, processors, and others do to bring food from the “farm to table”; or fun facts about food.
Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom has developed a page that is designed so the images can be printed on a half-page sticker sheet. Students and teachers may consider using the stickers in their local community. Some ideas include attaching to carry-out bags from local restaurants, pizza boxes, grocery store bags and take-home packets for students.
This year’s activity will not be judged, but those who share a submission will be entered into a drawing to win prizes. Entries must be postmarked by March 31. There are three grade level groups: Pre-K – 3rd grade, 4th– 8th grade and 9th-12th grade. Through a random drawing, ten entries from each age category will receive a $10 Culver’s gift card. All entries will receive Ag in the Classroom resources.
