Apply now to host a 2021 Progressive Agriculture Safety Day
During a normal summer, kids across the country have the opportunity to learn about farm safety at Progressive Agriculture Safety Days, but this year all in-person events had to be canceled due to COVID-19 concerns.
The cancellation makes next year’s program even more important, and now is the time to apply to host a 2021 Progressive Agriculture Safety Day. Applications are available online and are due July 15.
The one-day events can be opened to the entire community or held specifically for schools or other groups. Participants rotate between stations where they learn age-appropriate lessons through demonstratinos and fun hands-on activities. Coordinators can choose curriculum from more than 30 topics, so lessons can be customized for the particular audience or area.
All lessons and materials are provided by the Progressive Agriculture Foundation, and coordinators are trained in a self-paced online course and webinar. The Foundation also provides T-shirts and take-home bags for all volunteers and participants as well as insurance coverage.
