Take as may pictures as you want, but send in just one to this e-mail address: email@example.com. There’s only one rule: you have to take the picture on National Ag. day, which is Wednesday, March 18. Add a sentence or two about who took the picture, who’s in the photo, and where your operation is located. All photos will be put into an album and distributed throughout the state later in the year. The best photos might even end up on display at the agriculture office building in Salt Lake City. If you have any questions email them to firstname.lastname@example.org Sounds like fun!!
