The contest promotes agriculture education in Sonoma County with a coloring sheet focusing on the 2016 Ag Days theme: Four Seasons to Grow.  

The winner’s class received an agricultural themed ice cream party. Anita Hawkins, Raven Castro and Rachel LaFranchi of Sonoma County Farm Bureau visited Cunningham’s class on May 18th, spending an hour providing ice cream to the class while teaching them about different aspects of agriculture from livestock to water conservation. The students were enthusiastic about learning about agriculture, and pigs were a class favorite.
