Activities for Kids

Bookmark Project

 Design a bookmark illustrating how agriculture affects our lives each day. Whether it’s enjoying a glass of milk from a cow, eating apples from a local grower, wearing clothes made from cotton, eating cereal made with wheat or reading a newspaper printed using soy ink. Show us how farmers impact our lives. 


Enter our bookmark contest (up to age 12) and people from all over Cook County will use it during their summer reading.  


A First Place winner and three runners up will be selected.  The First Place winner will receive a $25 Amazon gift card, Runner Up winners will receive a $15 Amazon gift card.  All four will also receive an Ag themed book.  The winning bookmarks will be duplicated for distribution this summer at local libraries and at the Cook County Farm Bureau.
