This contest is designed to showcase the talents of young artists who share a passion for modern agriculture. A winning original piece of art will be chosen as the official National Ag Day poster. The contest is open to all amateur artists enrolled in high school or college.
Entries will be screened by a nine-member jury. Finalists will then be judged through online voting to determine one winner.
The 2015 contest theme is “Agriculture: Sustaining Future Generations.” The winning entry will be published as the official National Ag Day Poster and the winning artist will receive a $1,000 scholarship sponsored by Meredith Agrimedia. Artwork and profile of the artist will be prominently featured in Successful Farming magazine and Ag Day correspondence. Media releases will also be sent to all Ag Day sponsors and supporters. The original artwork will be on display in a public location.
