Carol Ann Grace Wor­sham was re­cently named the Gor­don County win­ner of the 22nd An­nual Ge­or­gia Farm Bureau Fed­er­a­tion Art Con­test. A sopho­more at Gor­don Cen­tral High School, Wor­sham re­ceived a cer­tifi­cate and a $100 cash prize for be­ing the top win­ner in the county.

“Ge­or­gia Farm Bureau’s art con­test is in­tended to en­cour­age stu­dents cre­atively to ex­plore Ge­or­gia agri­cul­ture, the num­ber one in­dus­try in the state,” Gor­don County Farm Bureau Pres­i­dent Henry West said. The Ge­or­gia Farm Bureau Women’s Com­mit­tee co­or­di­nated the statewide con­test.

Founded in 1937, Ge­or­gia Farm Bureau is the largest gen­eral farm or­ga­ni­za­tion in the state. Its vol­un­teer mem­bers ac­tively par­tic­i­pate in lo­cal, dis­trict and state ac­tiv­i­ties that pro­mote agri­cul­ture aware­ness to their non-farm­ing neigh­bors. GFB also has 20 com­mod­ity ad­vi­sory com­mit­tees that give the or­ga­ni­za­tion in­put on is­sues per­ti­nent to the ma­jor com­modi­ties grown in Ge­or­gia.
