Fort Scott, Kansas – The Fort Scott Community College Agriculture Department will host the 45th Annual Aggie Day contest on Friday, March 25th.


“We are excited to host a full event this year.” said Sara Sutton, FSCC Agriculture Instructor. “It is one of the largest contests of its type in the four state area so we are expecting a large turnout of high school agricultural students and 4-H club members.”


Students will have the opportunity to compete in the following areas of agriculture which include; entomology, farm management, floriculture, food science, livestock judging, meat evaluation, milk quality and products, nursery landscape, poultry, speech, and veterinary science.


With such a wide range of competitions, Aggie Day allows many students the opportunity to develop lifelong skills in evaluation, critical thinking and decision making, public speaking, and obtaining more knowledge about agricultural products. “These type of high caliber and competitive contests are absolutely essential in helping prepare young adults for life after high school,” said Juan Gavette, FSCC Agriculture Instructor. “The world continues to need sharp minded, well-spoken young men and women who can be leaders in all segments of agriculture. These competitions are a stepping stone in doing that.”


Teams should pre-register online at by Wednesday, March 16th at 5:00pm. Registration for the event will begin at 7:30am-8:30am on March 25that Arnold Arena, 2108 S. Horton St. Fort Scott, Kan.
