2013 Farm to School Poster Contest

In October 2013, students in Gallatin County celebrated National Farm to School Month by creating inspiring, original posters that express the theme “My favorite Montana food.” National Farm to School Month is a time to celebrate the connections happening all across the country between schools and local food producers.

With growing participation, 213 students from eight schools, Amsterdam, Bozeman Summit, Heck Quaw, Hyalite, Longfellow, Manhattan, and Middle Creek Montessori, submitted their artwork for this contest organized by Gallatin Valley Farm to School.
