Rep. Lehe Honors Ag Essay Winner

STATEHOUSE –Lt. Gov. Sue Ellspermann honored six Ag Essay contest winners Tuesday at the Statehouse as part of the kick-off celebration of Agriculture Month in Indiana.  State Representative Don Lehe (R-Brookston) joined in the celebration by congratulating Aubrey Fleck, a 12th grader at North White Junior-Senior High School, on winning second place for her grade group.  

“Agriculture is an important aspect of Indiana’s culture and economy,” said Rep. Lehe. “I was excited to see Aubrey get this award, and I am very thankful to her and the other students who participated in the essay contest.”

The Indiana’s Family of Farmers (IFoF) and Indiana Humanities sponsored this year’s Ag Essay Contest.  Each participant was asked to describe how Indiana farmers nourish our families, our animals and our earth. More than 500 students from across Indiana submitted essays.  

“Speaking with Aubrey reinforced my confidence in the future of Indiana,” said Rep. Lehe.  “It’s great to see schools putting an emphasis on agriculture-related education and encouraging students to share their knowledge.”

The winning essays will be posted on www.indianafamilyoffarmers.com and www.indianahumanities.org
