Ag Day chair Annette Degnan, CHS Inc., presents check to Bridger Gordon of South Dakota

Bridger Gordon is more than just junior from South Dakota. He is one of the bright, enthusiastic youth who are part of bringing the message of agriculture to the world. Gordon’s message rang loud and clear as he read his winning essay to the attendees of last week’s National Ag Day.

“I think about the many families, like mine, who rely on farming for their livelihood, but I also realize the local bank, grocery store, school and other businesses from the the auto dealer to the insurance agent to the gas station are all intertwined with the agriculture economy,” Gordon’s essay reads. “This interconnectedness between agriculture amongst families, communities, and economies is mirrored across my state, across the nation, and around the world.”

Thanks to the sponsorship of CHS, Gordon received $1,000 for his essay. You can hear him read it here: Ag Day essay winner, Bridger Gordon
