Wichita--Ada County Farm Bureau member Kara Jackson spoke to nearly 50 Farm Bureau volunteers and staff members from 15 states all across the country at the AFBF Promotions and Education Conference in Wichita, Kansas, Sept 24.
Miss Jackson, the currently reigning Miss Idaho, spoke to the group about her love of agriculture and the reasons she chose her Miss Idaho platform which is: "Modern Agriculture: Supporting and Sustaining Society". Her message revolved around the need to help consumers understand where their food comes from and that farming is important in their daily lives.
Jackson will compete for the Miss America title on January 30 and hopes to be able to share this positive message about agriculture with audiences all across the nation.
