Ag in Color

M.Y. Agriculture Literacy (Montana Youth Agriculture Literacy)

M.Y. Ag was created as a resource for educators to have access to accurate agricultural literature. With generous support from the Montana Farm Bureau Foundation, we have provided classrooms across Montana with books and materials to keep agriculture in the K-12 classroom. M.Y. Ag helps bridge the gap between those involved in agriculture and those who are generations removed from the farm or ranch. The goal is to make accurate ag materials accessible to all students in Montana.

The ‘Ag in Color’ drawing contest is open to all students and educators across Montana. Categories are designated for grades K-6.

Drawings are judged by the Montana Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee on agricultural content, originality, neatness, and reproducibility. Winning entries will be printed and distributed on usable items and other educational materials.
