Project by Barren County Student Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays

 

Abigail Coleman of Barren County was presented with an award of recognition by Vicki Bryant, Chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Committee, for her participation in the 2017 Science in Agriculture program.

Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Barren County student, Abigail Coleman, was among the 12 students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.

Abigail displayed her science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. Her project, “Biodegradable Corn Plastic,” demonstrated how corn products could be used to produce biodegradable plastic.

She was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for her participation at the state level.

The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.

Kentucky Farm Bureau, with over 478,000 member families statewide, is the state’s largest general farm organization. Approximately 2,000 members attended KFB’s 98th annual meeting in Louisville, November 29 – December 2, to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements and adopt policy for 2018.

Down the Backroads |  "I Just Called to Let You Know I Was Still Living!"

I will be the first to admit that through the years I have lost touch with friends, and even family, for one reason or another. Often was the case that we lived far apart from each other and losing touch just happened, I suppose.
