Ag In The Classroom Took Place, Thursday, September 16 At The Richland County Event Center In Sidney Ag In the Classroom has been an event for several years and teaches second and third graders about farm safety, how food grows, and where it comes from. Ag committee chair Hannah Jepsen said it's an important event to have because it teaches students farm safety. She went on to add that these students are the next generation of famers and even bankers.

FFA members explain to students where sugar and honey come from. They learned the different stages of a honey bee's life and how they make honey.

Tim Fine explained that they offer different projects to students each year but they're consistent in teaching farm safety. This year, students had the opportunity to try two different apples and see which one they liked best and voted on them. Another station they had allowed students to try pollen.

Several schools from the area participated in Ag In the Classroom this year. It's an event that is sure to continue to be a tradition for years to come.
