Project by Fleming County Students Featured in Kentucky Farm Bureau's "Science in Agriculture" Displays
Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Fleming County students Casey Hickerson and Jenna Utterback were 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.
Casey and Jenna displayed their science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. Their project, “Does Colored Light have an Effect on Plant Growth?” explored the effect different greenhouse plastics have on plant growth.
They were awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for their 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.
