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).
Division I - Grades 1 - 2
Division II - Grades 3 - 4
Division III - Grades 5 - 6
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.
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:
