The sixth grade agriscience class, Food, Forests and Wildlife, holds an Agricultural Career Fashion Show on February 8. Each student chooses an agricultural career that suits their interests and then researches that career, learning about the types of skills they will need for that career, salary, what they will wear to work and other interesting facts. They then dress up in props to represent that farming career and march towards the music and party lights.
Careers reviewed include dairy farmer, sales and marketing staff, plant scientist, animal scientist, and veterinarian. Several students completed the Ag Explorer Careers survey and were matched with careers in the agricultural industry based on their personal interests. Some were surprised by their matches – such as nuclear engineers, truck drivers, and graphic designers.
