2014 Annual Poster Essay Contest
"Kentucky Farmers - Our American Heroes"
Farmers grow food to feed our population, tend forests that produce wood to build shelter for us to live in, and raise animals and plants that provide clothing for our protection. These are just a few ways that farmers are heroes every day!
There are many ways farmers are heroes, working hard to provide what we need every day makes them heroes. Some can also be found serving in roles that make them heroes in our communities. Many farmers are also policemen, firefighters, first responders, teachers, coaches...
Not only that, but Kentucky has farmers that have served in the military protecting our country! For more information about "Homegrown By Heroes" visit:
