Athens-Meigs Farm Bureau recently held it’s 16th Annual Agriculture Awareness Day on Friday, Sept. 23, 2016, at the Athens County Fairgrounds. Over 500 4th graders came from across Athens County to participate in a fun-filled day of agriculture education. The students had the opportunity to visit 15 different sessions, ranging from various animals such as dairy cows, fish and sheep to making soybean necklaces and aquaculture bracelets.
We would like to thank all of the participating presenters for donating their time and knowledge. We would also like to thank Alexander FFA and Athens FFA for all of their hard work and help with the sessions. We also want to thank all of our sponsors. We could not have made this even happen without all of you. Congratulations to Joaquin Dagostino, the winner of the T-shirt design contest. We look forward to next year!
