Tyler Lacock was the second place winner and won an additional $50 and Tylee Norton won third place with an additional $25.
“I believe the fact that Emery County had five state winners out of five county winners says a lot for our teachers,” explained Emery County Farm Bureau President Joel Hatch.
Emery County Farm Bureau and Utah Farm Bureau would like to give sincere thanks to the teachers, parents and especially the students for their participation and continued support. Agriculture needs to remain a topic of learning in the public school system to teach the general public how vital agriculture is to our actual survival. This is an excellent opportunity to teach and share agriculture in the classroom.
