Project by local student featured in Science in Agriculture displays

-A A +A


LeeAnn Jones of Loretto was among nine students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau annual meeting in Louisville.
Jones, a fifth grade student at West Marion Elementary, exhibited a project entitled “Fresh Spices: Can You Tell the Difference,” that examined the taste of food when using store-bought spices in different foods versus using home-grown spices.
Each winning project was awarded $75 and a certificate of recognition for their participation at the state level.
The Science in Agriculture program was developed by Kentucky Farm Bureau as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.
Approximately 1,700 members attended KFB’s 93rd annual meeting, Dec. 5-8, to recognize this year’s individual and organizational achievements as well as adopt policy for 2013.
