Tri Kids Win Lugar Essay Contest
December 3, 2008 - U.S. Sen. Dick Lugar today announced the county winners of the 2008-2009 Dick Lugar Youth Essay Contest. Jack Garner and Brooke Ballard, both Tri Junior High School students, were winners from Henry County.
Eighth grade students throughout Indiana wrote essays focusing on this year's theme, "Working Our Way to Energy Independence." Students explored how farmers can lead the way to a sustainable energy future. In addition, they were asked to consider how the demand for alternative fuel sources will impact Hoosier farmers, rural economies, and our nation's security.
A farmer and former small businessman, Lugar created the Dick Lugar/Indiana Farm BureaulFarm Bureau Insurance Companies Agricultural Essay Contest as a way to teach Hoosier youth about the state's agricultural heritage.
County winners will now compete at the district level. District winners will be invited to attend the Indiana Farm Bureau Spring Conference March 6, in Indianapolis, where they will be recognized for their achievements. State winners will be named at the spring conference.
