2018 Young Artist Contest

The Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Young Artist Contest was an excellent way for students to showcase the beauty of Oregon agriculture through original artwork. OregonĀ  students in 7th -12th grade submitted artwork about Oregon agriculture to the contest. Forty-six quality entries were submitted. Below are the winning entries in each category. Congratulations to all of the artists.

This program has been discontinued. We look forward to exploring new ways to engage young artists with Oregon agriculture! Stay tuned!
