Agricultural Youth Injury Prevention Grants


Hey kids!! You can make a difference

Do your part to educate your community about farm safety and health. We’ll even give you the money to do it.

In 2013, 4-H youth and Washington County Extension worked together to conduct a project entitled “Stay Safe, Take a Break” where they handed out goodie bags (ear plugs, dust masks, homemade treats, etc.) to farmers at harvest.

Examples from the past:
• Distributed ear plugs, sun screen, and cookies to farmers at harvest time
• Built a farm safety hazard hunt scene
• Purchased blurred vision goggles for an educational program
• Held a coloring, poster, or writing contest about tractor, ATV, livestock safety
• Held a car seat checkup and gave out candy to those using them

The top project winner, based on the evaluations turned in by September 30, 2014, will be offered an expense paid trip to the MRASH conference in November 2014.
