Are you a high school student who likes to create art or do you know one who does? Then check out the 2023 Georgia Farm Bureau High School Art Contest. The state winner will win $250, one state runner-up will receive $150, and 10 district winners will each receive $100.
The contest is open to all public, private and homeschool students in 9th through 12th grades. Finished artwork must be on 8.5 x 11-inch white paper and should be created in the colors black, white and gray. Contestants may use a variety of media to create their artwork including graphite, charcoal, pastel, chalk, colored pencil, pen-and-ink, ballpoint pen or mixed media appropriate for printing.
Only one entry per person. Multiple entries will be disqualified. Previous state winners are not eligible. Students may enter the contest in the county in which they live or attend school but not both counties.
The Coffee County Farm Bureau encourages students to enter the contest. The winner of the Coffee County Farm Bureau Art Contest will receive $100, the 2nd place winner will receive $75 and the 3rd place winner will receive $50.
Students should contact the Coffee County Farm Bureau for an official entry form and contest rules at 912-384-4412. All entries must be received at the Coffee County Farm Bureau office by February 17, 2023.
“The purpose of the Farm Bureau Art Contest is to encourage students to creatively explore Georgia agriculture and increase their knowledge of the contributions it makes to our lives. Georgia farmers produce a wide variety of crops and livestock including poultry, beef cattle, dairy, cotton, peanuts, timber, pecans, blueberries and many other fruits and vegetables,” said Mary Elizabeth Pridgen County Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee Chairman.
Between the crops Georgia farmers grow and the jobs agriculture creates to harvest, process and transport these crops, agriculture contributed $69.4 billion to Georgia’s economy in 2020, according to the UGA College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences.
Drawings will be judged on 1) how well the artwork represents modern agriculture found in Coffee County or Georgia and 2) artistic merit.

All entries must be officially submitted by the Coffee County Farm Bureau to the GFB contest. All submitted artwork must be original and becomes the property of Georgia Farm Bureau once submitted. GFB may use artwork from the contest on various products distributed or sold by the organization to promote agriculture.
