Agricenter’s Ag Day Student Art Contest + Exhibition


MEMPHIS, TN – Calling all 3rd through 12th graders in Shelby and DeSoto Counties! Enter Agricenter’s inaugural Ag Day Student Art Contest and Exhibition with your creative entries in these six categories: drawing, painting, collage, photography, graphic design and short video.

Winners will be announced and entries on display at the Ag Day Celebration on March 29 (11am-1pm) at the Farmer’s Market at Agricenter International. In addition to the announcement of the Student Art Contest + Exhibition winners, the Ag Day Celebration will feature additional exhibits and speakers on Agriculture. The public is invited to attend.

The contest is designed to stretch the imagination of students as they envision and promote the role and importance of agriculture in our lives through their creative entries. We want participants to be as imaginative and expressive as possible within the theme of “Farm of the Future,” which pairs perfectly with 2018 National Ag Day theme “How Agriculture Will Feed the World.”

Agriculture is as old as time, but the world is changing fast. From incredible advances in technology, biology and genetics to an expected population boom – farms of the future will be optimized to provide more than ever before. This year we’ll tap into the limitless imaginations of students across the Mid-South in a challenge to visualize what future farms could look like.


Artwork submission period is January 16 – March 9, 2018. Artwork can be created inside or outside of school.

In each category: First Place ($100), Second Place ($50), Third Place ($25), and teacher of First Place winners receive $100. In addition, all participating teachers are eligible for a drawing for $250 toward classroom supplies.

Agricenter would like to thank generous sponsors of this contest and exhibition: Sullivan Branding, National Agri-Marketing Association (NAMA), and Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
