Cumberland County Farm Bureau Women hold an essay contest annually for county-wide 5th grade students as part of the Tennessee Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee’s statewide contest.  The theme for the contest was  “Why is Agriculture Important?”

This contest theme was intended to give students the opportunity to tell why they feel agriculture is important while displaying their language standards and writing skills.  The judging criteria included Content and Accuracy of Information (50%), Originality of Thought (20%), Clarity of Expression (20%) and Correct Use of Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation (10%).

The first-place winner of this year’s contest was Abigail Brownfield who attends Brown Elementary.  Placing second was Pleasant Hill Elementary student Mae Matthews and third place went to Ava Claire Dukes from Stone Elementary.

Abigail’s winning essay was submitted to the Tennessee Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee’s State Contest.

The Cumberland County FBW appreciates all the students who participated in the contest as well as all the school staff who assisted with the contest.
