Agriculture officials are encouraging young Nebraska students to participate in an annual poster contest.
The state Department of Agriculture says submissions are now being accepted for the 10th annual NDA Agriculture Week in Nebraska Poster Contest. This year's theme focuses on the role of farmers and ranchers.
Winning entries will be featured on the agency's website and potentially in promotional materials.
The contest is open to students currently enrolled in first through sixth grade. Three age divisions will make up the contest.
The entry deadline is March 1. Winners will be announced later that month.
