Molly Sullivan, a fifth-grade student at Taylor County Elementary School, was one of 11 youths from across the state invited to display her agriculture science project at the Kentucky Farm Bureau annual meeting in Louisville.

Sullivan was awarded $75 and a certificate of recognition for her participation with a project titled "Which M&M has more chocolate?"

The Science in Agriculture program was developed by Kentucky Farm Bureau as a way to encourage teachers to incorporate agricultural themes into their classroom instruction. Projects are evaluated on categories such as creativity, skill, clarity and thoroughness, agricultural accuracy and scientific thought.

With more than 500,000 member families statewide, Kentucky Farm Bureau is the state's largest farm organization.

About 1,300 members attended the 91st annual meeting Dec. 1-4 to recognize this year's achievements and adopt policy for 2011.
