Teach Ag Day North Dakota Classroom Posters

Consider a career in Agricultural Education

To help promote agricultural education Team Abovo worked alongside Desi Severance (Wyndmere Public School) and Dr. Adam Marx (North Dakota State University) to produce a dynamic and interesting poster that would display in classrooms throughout the entire state of North Dakota.


As our creative team began this project, we discovered and reflected in one main challenge:  We knew these posters would be displayed in classrooms throughout the duration of a school year (and maybe even longer).  Because of this, we knew the poster could be filled with (informational) text but we also had to employ the tactic of making it interesting enough to entice a student to want to read it and to create “new things” for them to discover each time they looked at it.


Our answer to this challenge was a “roadmap” made of interesting graphics that directly and/or indirectly illustrated the accompanying text and copy of the poster.  The wide variety of graphics, in their size, offered the ability to split up the massive amount of information text that our client required be on the poster.  The wide variety of graphics, in their level of detail, offered us the ability to “hide” little things, images, scenes and other details for students to discover.  We believe the incredible attention to detail offers a product that is interesting no matter how many times you consume it: There’s always something new to discover!

The work and solution we did with our clients and for this project earned Team Abovo a “Silver” American Advertising Federation (AAF) Award for 2019 in the state of North Dakota.  The award was given in the advertising category of: Out-of-home & Ambient Media (Poster).

    Hey there 🙂

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress
    like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by
    searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!
