Today’s blog is about the Cream of the Crop Photo Contest which is open to Illinois students between ages 8 and 18. The contest asks students to submit a photograph that best describes their vision of agriculture in Illinois, and prizes include attending a reception and having their photo on marketing materials. Please visit the web site linked in this blog for more information and submit your entry by June 24. We enjoy sharing these sorts of contests with students in our accredited middle school program, accredited high school program and independent study program, and we would be happy to share similar contests which are open to students in other states or regions. If you know of any, please let us know. We will review your suggestions and share them if possible. Thank you for your ideas and thank you for making American School your school of choice.
