Cherokee County School District third-graders recently participated in the Cherokee County Farm Bureau’s annual Third Grade Farm City Week Poster Contest.

Students learned about the importance of agriculture in their daily lives and created artwork that expressed how they think farmers and businesses relate to each other. More than 300 posters were entered into the contest and displayed at the Farm Bureau’s office. Each first-place winner received a $25 gift card, and each second-place winner received a $20 gift card.

The winners are: Avery Elementary School: Blake Eubanks; Bascomb Elementary School: Kenny Pederson; Clayton Elementary School: Korbin Wendling, first, and Sophie Zurita, second; Hasty Elementary School Fine Arts Academy: Griffin Masak, first, and Kellim Bekebrede, second; Indian Knoll Elementary School: Austin Marquis, first, and Makinlie Prosceno, second; Johnston Elementary School: Elizabeth Isaacs, first, and Madelynn Grace Ragsdale, second; Knox Elementary School STEM Academy, Chloe Pitts, first, and Molly Presley, second; R.M. Moore Elementary School STEM Academy: Abby Tyler, first, and Emma Kate, second.
