When most students hear the word “essay”, you will typically see angry and annoyed faces or students jumping out of the room to avoid the work. That is not the case for some exceptional students from throughout Pennsylvania. This year, the Teach Ag! Society hosted the 5th annual Teach Ag! Essay Event. It was our most successful year yet, with 83 entries from over 26 different schools!
