COSHOCTON – National Agriculture or “Ag” Day is a day to celebrate the importance of agriculture in our community. All students in Coshocton County Schools, grades 9-12, are encouraged to participate in the National Ag Day Essay Contest. The topic for this year’s essay is “Agriculture: Food for Life.” The essay must address the official topic and be 500 words or less.

Essays are due to teacher contacts at each local high school by March 3. The teachers include Sue Davis at Ridgewood High School, Stephanie Snyder at River View High School, and Tim Kilpatrick at the Coshocton County Career Center. The winning essay from each school will be submitted to the local Ag Day committee for selection of the winning essay.

The author of the overall winning essay will receive a $50 cash prize donated by the Coshocton County Chamber of Commerce. The winning student will also be asked to read winning essay at the Ag Day Luncheon on March 21.
