Three Sisters Student Wins Oregon Ag Contest

September 25, 2018 | Lorene Ferguson

Hannah Darby, a sixth-grade student from Three Sisters Adventist Christian School in Bend, Ore., is one of 13 winners in an Oregon Agriculture Foundation art contest. This annual event is open to elementary-age children in the state of Oregon who enter illustrations of state industries such as agriculture, forestry, fishing, ranching and others. More than 2,000 illustrations were entered this year.

This year’s winning pictures will be featured in a school-year calendar distributed statewide. Darby’s entry — a picture of a Christmas tree farm — will illustrate December 2019.

On Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018, the 13 winning students were introduced at Oregon State Fair in Salem, with each receiving a $50 award and certificate. Darby was acknowledged as one of the 13 winners. Her teacher, Maurita Crew, and several of Darby’s family were there also. It was a fun and exciting day for all.
