Congratulations to the 2020 Bookmark Contest Finalists!

This spring, we are excited to recognize 12 students as our 2020 bookmark finalists.  Over 1,900 entries were submitted for this contest, and the artwork was incredible.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to participate and share your Wyoming resource message!  All finalists were selected by a panel of judges, and the winner of our People’s Choice was chosen by popular vote during National Agriculture Week.

With extended closures due to current unforeseen circumstances, the Bookmark Celebration scheduled for April 24th has been postponed.  We will be holding a celebration for the finalists and their families at a later date.  Invitations will be mailed when the date and location of the celebration have been confirmed.  We appreciate everyone’s continued patience as we navigate these uncertain times.

In the meantime, we invite families and teachers looking for meaningful activities to check out our Family Learning Series and Wyoming Stewardship Project lessons.  All these materials are available to download and use for free.  Educators can also sign up for summer workshops that will be happening in communities across Wyoming. Together we will make it through this!

FFA in the Elementary Classroom

Members of Wyoming FFA chapters shared their knowledge of agriculture with fourth-grade students during the State FFA Convention in April.  Wyoming Agriculture in the Classroom provided the workshop for FFA Members, before accompanying the Jr. High and High School students on a visit to the fourth-grade classrooms at Sunrise Elementary in Cheyenne.
