Agriculture & Natural Resources Activities Day 2012
Friday, December 7, 2012
Ag & NatR Activities Day (formerly known as Ag Activities Day) has been taking place at the University of Minnesota, Crookston for over 30 years. It is an annual event that allows area high school students the opportunity to participate in agricultural activities. There are over 20 contests for students to compete in. The contests are overseen by UMC Agriculture and Natural Resources Department faculty. Last year almost 50 high schools participated in this event.
An awards ceremony culminates the exciting day. Scholarships, plaques and certificates are awarded to school teams and individuals for each contest. Over $32,000 in scholarships are available to award-winning students. Last year, $750 UMC scholarships were awarded for the high individual in each contest, $600 UMC scholarships were awarded for the second place individual, and $450 UMC scholarships were awarded for the third place individual.
Some livestock contests may be held in unheated areas. Please have students dress accordingly.
We ask your cooperation and respect for competitors and winners at the awards ceremony. If you cannot attend the entire ceremony, we hope you have a safe and early trip home.
