NDFB Week drawing contest winners announced

Topic: Events

The future of agriculture is constantly developing and adapting. Daily, agriculture gives us reasons to be thankful. To celebrate NDFB Week, March 8-14, 2020, NDFB thought it would be fun to see why fourth and fifth-grade students are thankful for agriculture. Students were asked to submit a drawing indicating why they are thankful for agriculture.

Fourth grade winner in 2020 NDFB Week drawing contest

The fourth-grade winner is Hunter Suchy of Mandan, N.D. The photo outlined North Dakota and incorporated all the things agriculture can bring to the state, including food on our plate, sunflowers, and even dollar signs to show how it can help the economy.

Fifth grade winner in 2020 NDFB Week drawing contest

The fifth-grade winner is Trevin Behm from Medina, N.D. Behm drew a farm scene, with a barn and tractor. Inside the tractor are a boy and his father. Written on the page is "Bonding with my Dad." The photo depicts that agriculture means many things to many different people. To Behm, it means a lifetime of memories with his dad in the tractor.

“The students did not disappoint this year,” said Lisa Hauf, NDFB Director of Public Relations. “We had so much fun looking at the drawings and seeing agriculture through a child’s eyes.”

Each winner will receive $100.
