Who is your Ag Superhero?

Transforming the Face of Ag with Trading Cards

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!

For questions or more information, reach out to Sarah Jane at sthomsen@statefairva.org or 804-994-2743.

Sponsor a Trading Card!

Is your company or organization interested in being a sponsor? We have options for you!

Sponsor support will aid towards production and distribution of the Ag Superhero Trading Cards to ensure each child that comes through our Ed Expo gets a trading card and that we can distribute trading cards throughout the state! Sponsors are not involved in nor influence the trading card selection process.

  • Single Card Sponsor (limited to 12): Your logo will be on a card as that "Ag Superhero's" Sponsor. Pairing will be made after the committee selects trading cards for the year. Let's get each one of our superstars sponsored! Your company will be noted as a sponsor on the Trading Cards landing page website.
  • Series Sponsor: Your logo will be on trading card communication, in the Ed Expo guide and in an interactive educational activity that will be provided for teachers and students. A logo linked to your website will also be on the Trading Cards landing page website as a sponsor, and more!
  • General Sponsor: Your name and logo listed on the Trading Cards landing page website.

Want to do more? Additional sponsor support will go towards growing up our Ag programming and resources to better connect the public and fairgoers to Agriculture and where their food comes from!

Contact us to learn more at sthomsen@statefairva.org or 804-994-2743. We'd love to work with you as we showcase agriculture, natural resources and the skilled trade industries serving Virginia!
