Congratulations to our Winning Bookmark
Our winning bookmark was created by 12-year-old Ana who attends St. Alphonsus St. Patrick School. Her colorful representation of local products such as bees, honey, corn, floriculture and wheat captured first place. Local youth enjoy learning about agriculture through classroom programs, visiting local farm stands and even participating in camps and library opportunities. While Ana thanked our farmers, we want to thank her and all the other entrants in our contest.
We were so excited to see 140 bookmark designs submitted to express gratitude for farmers and agriculture. Our annual bookmark contest is always one of the highlights of the year as we open our envelopes and emails and see how agriculture is perceived through the lens of a local artist. We thank teachers who submitted entries from their schools and individuals who entered on their own.
The winner of the contest was Ana from Woodridge, who will be awarded a $40 Amazon gift card. The runner-up winners were Leonardo from Chicago, Maja from Orland Park, and Haley from Woodridge who will each receive a $20 Amazon gift card. Congratulations to all! The bookmarks will be given out during our summer library programming and to all students who receive Ag in the Classroom Programming next year at their school.
