Ag Literacy Festivals are held across the state and target second to fifth-grade students to engage them in hands-on activities increasing their knowledge of agricultural production and where their food comes from. As a result, youth gain a better understanding of agriculture and its impact on Nebrask and become more informed consumers who can make well-informed decisions concerning agriculture issues. Since the creation of Ag Literacy Festivals, 90,664 grade school students have attended. Curriculum goals include that the youth will be able to determine products they use in their lives that are from corn and soybeans, explain how corn and soybeans are used for different purposes (human/animal/energy), recognize the corn and soybean life and production cycles and identify the importance of technology in agriculture to help farmers feed the world.
