Funding will be available for travel and expenses to attend the meeting. A cash award will also be given to the top project.
This grant program was developed to encourage youth to take an active role in preventing injuries and deaths on farms by raising awareness about safety and health issues with farmers and other youth in their community. The projects should be conducted by youth, with adults serving as mentors and advisors.
Applicants should consider the type of farming in their community, any injuries or deaths that may have happened in the past, as well as the obvious hazards such as tractors and livestock. Health issues such as hearing loss, sun exposure, ergonomics, and proper hydration should also be considered.
The message of farm safety and health can be delivered in a variety of ways. Below are some examples:
