4-H Photography & Art Contest 2018

— Written By

Once again, the 4-H Photography and Art Contests were held as a part of Farm-City Week. Artists and photographers displayed their creative talents while also showcasing the importance of agriculture in our county. Each work of art has an agrarian theme and complements the idea of the partnership between the rural and urban way of life, which is promoted through Farm-City Week.

4-H Art Contest

The artists were asked to submit any agriculture themed artwork. The Painted Petal art teacher and owner, Lisa Orlando was the judge. We had submissions from J. Glenn Edwards, Broadway Elementary, West Lee Middle School, San Lee Middle School, Lee County Senior High, and several self-submissions.
