HAVRE DE GRACE — Eighteen Maryland student artists have won a $50 award and the publication of their artwork in the annual calendar for the Maryland Agricultural Education Foundation (MAEF).

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the approval of the Maryland agricultural license plate, which supports MAEF programs, this year’s calendar has been dubbed the “Ag Tag” edition.

The Calendar Contest is open to students across the state of Maryland. This year, over 200 contest entries were received from students statewide. MAEF’s mission of promoting the understanding and appreciation of the importance of agriculture in everyone’s daily lives proves to be a winner among students. Their enthusiasm and various scenes portrayed in their art reflect their understanding of the importance of agriculture to the Maryland community and beyond.

MAEF congratulates the following students on their artistic achievements and designation as a 2020 Calendar Contest winner:
