Fredrick Elementary Students Help Make Cotton the State Fiber

Mon, 26 Apr 2021 13:28:32 CDT

Fredrick Elementary Students Help Make Cotton the State Fiber   Cotton has become the official fiber of the State of Oklahoma -all thanks to the 3rd grade students and faculty of Frederick Elementary School.

The students and their teachers wrote letters to their legislators to make this happen after reading Ag In The Classroom’s Red Dirt Symbols and realizing the beautiful cotton growing all around them was not an official state symbol.

After months of preparing and learning about the government process, writing their letters, multiple AITC lessons, and visiting local cotton fields and gins, the 3rd grade students made their way to the state Capitol to watch their hard work in the classroom come to fruition.

Senator Chris Kidd and Representative Trey Caldwell each presented the Resolution in their respective Chambers on April 19, 2021.

Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom, the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry, and the Oklahoma Cotton Council provided lunch, goodies and their very own copy of the resolution to each student who played a part.
