Teri Rowland’s 2016 Spring Equine class was awarded first place in the 2016 National Ag Day Video Contest for their video, “Healthy Planet, Happy Horses.” The students were awarded $250 scholarship from the Powder River Basin Resource Council. The contest was opened to all Sheridan County high school students and the theme was: ”Agriculture: Stewards of a Healthy Planet.” The contest took place in conjunction with National Ag Day 2016. The video requirements were to define sustainable agriculture, discuss how sustainable farming and ranching practices contribute to a healthy planet and describe the benefits of sustainable agriculture to their local community.
