25th Ag Day Continues To Educate 4th Graders About Agriculture
WARSAW — The 25th Annual Ag Day will be April 11 and 12 at the Kosciusko County Fairgrounds. Approximately, 1,035 fourth grade students from Warsaw, Tippecanoe Valley, Whitko, Wawasee, Sacred Heart and Lakeland Christian Academy will attend the event.
Each class will visit 12 educational booths on horticulture, 4-H, crops, swine, beef, chickens, dairy, soils and water quality, ducks, farm machinery, horses and food safety. At each booth students will participate in an eight minute educational demonstration.
In addition to participating in these activities, teachers and students will also receive an educational packet containing information from each station.
The Kosciusko County Ag Day is an annual event that provides fourth grade classes from Kosciusko County with the opportunity to learn more about agriculture through a pre and post-test, in addition to the day’s presentations. Nearly 200 volunteers and sponsors help make Ag Day activities possible.
Ag Day is sponsored by the Kosciusko County: Agriculture Awareness Committee, Extension Office, Farm Bureau, County Community Foundation, Cargill Animal Nutrition, and Farm Credit Mid America and supported by the Kosciusko County Community Fair.
