School-age children (K-12) have until June 5 to enter the Creative Expression Contest

The Ohio Department of Agriculture today reminds parents and children that the deadline for the 2015 “Agriculture is Cool!” Creative Expression contest is less than four weeks away. Ohio children enrolled in school or home schooled during the 2014-2015 academic year are encouraged to capture their personal interpretation of why Ohio agriculture is cool for their chance to win prizes including a trip to the fair. Entries must be postmarked by June 5, 2015.

Entries, which can include an original video, photograph, drawing, or painting, will be judged in the following age categories. One winner from each age group and category will be chosen:

  • Grades K-2: Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 3-5: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 6-8: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting
  • Grades 9-12: Video, Photography, Drawing or Painting

All entries will be judged by a panel that may include representatives from the Ohio Department of Agriculture, the Office of the Governor, the Ohio Expo Center, and professionals in the areas of video production, photography, drawing, painting and other visual arts. Judging will be based on the student’s visual representation of the “Ag is Cool!” theme, if it accurately reflects 21st Century agriculture, creativity and use of Ohio images, and quality of work.

Award winners will be recognized by the Office of the Governor and other state officials at the Ohio State Fair on July 29, 2015.

Flags 4 Vets

Posted on: May 14th, 2015 | School News

On Saturday May 23, the St. Michael Knights of Columbus are organizing an annual event, Flags 4 Vets.  This event helps assure that every U.S. Military Veteran buried at Resurrection Cemetery gets a fresh clean American Flag placed on his or her grave.  Resurrection Cemetery is located on US23 just north of Delaware/Franklin county line in Lewis Center.

This work involves teams of 4-5 people making sure that their assigned 50-60 veteran grave sites have flags. We will  be placing over 1400 flags. The work will begin at 1:30 pm. Family and friends are welcome, and children are encouraged to participate. This is a wonderful volunteer opportunity for the entire family. The event is rain or shine, but lightning or a tornado watch/warning will cancel the event.

Since teams are pre-assigned, please help us stay organized and pre-register to work the event.  Please sign up online before May 18 so that we can assign the teams ahead of time (Click YES for RSVP):
