We need your help!
As part of our 2023 State Fair of Virginia Ed Expo, we are launching "Superhero" trading cards featuring Virginia's super Ag, Natural Resources and related skilled trades workers. With one twist, we want to make your favorites into modern superheroes-- because feeding the world and being a steward of the land is a superpower!
We need your help to nominate individuals (or yourself) that you think exemplify what it means to be a Virginia farmer, agvocate, or friend of a farmer (including but not limited to individuals working in Natural Resources, conservation, trades, etc. affecting agriculture). Who is your ag superhero?
There is no stereotype we are trying to fit, so all nominations related to agriculture, natural resources and relevant trades professions- including youth- serving the ag and related areas are welcome!
Selected individuals (with the individual's approval) will be made into tradable cards and distributed to Virginia's youth through various methods, including but not limited to during the State Fair of Virginia and its Ed Expo.
Teachers and parents will be provided with activities and lesson plans to take their lessons to the next level back in the classroom as they learn all about the amazing and unique people that make up our industry, take care of the land and put food on the table!
