Edmonson Voice Report:
Edmonson County student Reese Childress was among the eight students selected from across the state to display their agriculture science projects at this week’s Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) annual meeting in Louisville.
Childress, a fifth-grade student at Edmonson 5/6 Center, displayed her science project “Good Science,” which explored the best way to chill ice cream ingredients to obtain a creamy consistency.
Childress was awarded $125.00 and a certificate of recognition for her participation at the state level. She is the daughter of Daniel and Chelsea Childress of Wingfield.
The Science in Agriculture program was developed by KFB to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.
Kentucky Farm Bureau is the state’s largest general farm organization with more than 468,000 member families. For more news and updates from Kentucky Farm Bureau, visit KYFB.com/newsroom.
