Get $250 for your next safety related project!

How often have you walked around your farm or ranch and thought “I should fix that” or “I should replace that?” The first question is always “how much will it cost?”

What if it was something safety related? You need a new fire extinguisher for the barn. The PTO shield needs replaced. Would the cost factor make you think twice?

Successful Farming magazine and Farm Safety 4 Just Kids have teamed up to take some of financial burden out of the equation of safety.

Ten $250 Successful Farming Farm Family grants are awarded to farmers and ranchers across the country to put toward safety improvements that will directly impact children. Past winners have used the grant to buy ATV or equestrian helmets, daycare during the busy season, new fencing to keep kids in or out, and upgrading electrical in farm buildings.

As long as the change will help make kids safer on your farm – the project is accepted.

All that’s standing between you and $250 is a one page explanation about the project, how much the total project will cost, and the kids it will protect.

Deadline for the application is September 3. Send the one page explanation to fs4jk@fs4jk.org or:

Farm Safety 4 Just Kids
11304 Aurora Ave.
Urbandale, IA  50322

Winners will be announced before the end of the year!
