Purpose

Iowa Agricultural Injury Prevention Youth Grants award funding for youth to conduct a farm safety and/or health educational program, campaign, or social media event. The projects should be conducted by youth, with adults serving as mentors and advisors.

Project examples include, but are not limited to:

  • Distributing ear plugs, sun screen, and healthy snacks to farmers at harvest time
  • Distribute slow moving vehicle (SMV) signs at the local implement dealership, using the opportunity to talk with farmers about roadway safety
  • Make a poster about hearing protection for the county fair and hand out ear plugs and brochures
  • Speak with farmers while they wait in line to drop off grain at the local co-op. Pass out a fact sheet about respiratory health and distribute N95 respirators.
  • Produce a YouTube video about safely sorting cattle, using the funds to purchase props for demonstrations, special makeup, or editing software
  • Hold a local essay or poster contest about ATV safety and give away ATV helmets to the winners
  • Develop livestock safety manuals and signs for county fair participants
