Tennessee Agriculture Literacy Week

Oct 27, 2017


Dr. Richard Clark

November 12-18, 2017

4-H members can share the story of agriculture through reading ac-curate agriculture books to younger students in the community. This a great way to get students involved in 4-H and gain service hours for local honor clubs. It is encouraged to read non-fiction books this week to educate students. This activity is a great opportunity for junior and senior members.

Where to get books:

  • Local Farm Bureau Literacy Library- located at local Farm Bureau offices
  • TennesseeAg – a list of suggested books to read

Prizes:

For every class that the student reads to, their name is submitted into a drawing for a free Orca Chaser! Participating teacher is also entered in a raffle for the chance to win a $50 gift card.


Our goal for Tennessee 4-H is to have full participation from all 95 counties
