2021 Safety Poster Program

2021 Safety Poster Program

Since 1950, Kansas Farm Bureau has sponsored the Safety Poster Program. Our theme this year is "Roadmap for Safety – Farm, Family, Community.” Suggested topics include Tractor Safety, Families Caring for Families, General Farmer Wellness, Mental Health Awareness and Getting Home Safely (roadway safety).

Divisions
Division I - Grades 1 - 2
Division II - Grades 3 - 4
Division III - Grades 5 - 6 

Rules
Students in grades 1-6 are eligible to submit a poster. Be sure to verify the deadline with your county Farm Bureau (use the drop down feature on the right hand side of the linked page) as this date will vary from county to county.

Awards  
County level awards are determined by your local Farm Bureau.
State level awards are as follows:
1 st – 3 rd places in each division and 4 - 5 th places (honorable mention) in each division.
1 st place = $100; 2 nd place = $75, 3 rd place = $50 and honorable mentions receive a letter and certificate of achievement. 

In addition, the teacher of each of the top three winners in all divisions will receive a $50 gift card to use to promote agriculture as they see fit in their classrooms.

Your county Farm Bureau can provide poster paper or you may use your own paper as long as the following information is included the back of your poster:

Name___________________________ Guardian’s Name___________________

Mailing Address_____________________ City______________ ST__ Zip______

School Name_______________ Grade _______ Teacher’s Name _____________

Note: Please print legibly or your poster will not be accepted. 

Guidelines for the most effective safety poster messages include:
* Emphasize farm safety
* Focus on one main idea
* Meaning should be understood at a glance

Things to avoid in an effective safety poster message include:
* Non "Kansas Agriculture" related themes
* No central idea
* Too much going on in your poster
