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

 

Louisville, KY (November 30, 2017) – Hardin County student, Preston Meredith, 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.

Preston displayed his science project as part of the KFB annual meeting tradeshow. His project, “How Do Plants Drink Water?” explored how plants intake water.

He was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for his 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.

Preston Meredith of Hardin County was presented with an award of recognition by Vicki Bryant, chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau state Women’s Committee, for his participation in the 2017 Science in Agriculture program.
