National Agriculture Day will be celebrated March 19, according to The Agriculture Council of America (ACA). This will mark the 40th anniversary of National Ag Day, which is celebrated in classrooms and communities across the country.

The theme for Ag Day 2013 is "Generations Nourishing Generations."

On March 19, ACA will host major events in the nation's capital including the Mix-and-Mingle Luncheon and the National Celebration of Agriculture Dinner.

Additionally, the ACA will bring approximately 100 college students to Washington to deliver the message of Ag Day to the Hill.

These events honor National Agriculture Day and mark a nationwide effort to tell the true story of American agriculture and remind citizens that agriculture is a part of all of us. A number of producers, agricultural associations, corporations, students and government organizations involved in agriculture are expected to participate.

National Ag Day is organized by the ACA, a nonprofit organization composed of leaders in the agricultural, food and fiber community, dedicating its efforts to increasing the public's awareness of agriculture's role in modern society.

The National Ag Day program encourages every American to:

• Understand how food and fiber products are produced.

• Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products.

• Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy.

• Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry.



Official National Ag Day Poster

A winning original piece of art has been chosen as the Official National Ag Day poster.

April Fox, Wayne State University, was selected the winner of the contest. Fox was selected among many young artists in the competition.

The contest theme was Generations Nourishing Generations. Entries were screened by a nine-member jury and finalists were judged through online voting to determine the winner.

Fox will receive a $1,000 scholarship from Successful Farming. The artist will receive a portion of the proceeds from limited edition prints and the original artwork will be on display in a public location.
