The art work is judged on how well the artwork represents modern agriculture found in the student’s county or Georgia’s agriculture industry. The Georgia Farm Bureau encourages student to participate by offering money for the winners. Polk County Farm Bureau women’s committee has outside judges to select the winners and also gives money to the winners.
