Local 4th Graders Attend 20th Annual Progressive Agriculture Safety Day®
Bowling Green, KY – On Thursday, September 24, South Edmonson Elementary 4th graders joined Warren and Allen County 4th graders at the 20th annual Progressive Agriculture Safety Day®.
The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® is an annual event put on by the KY Partnership for Farm Family Health and Safety, Inc. in partnership with South Central KY AHEC and WKU Institute for Rural Health.
During the day long field trip, students traveled to 9 different safety stations covering topics such as internet safety, sun safety, fire safety, grain bin safety, disability awareness, and ATV safety. The students also watched a tractor rollover demonstration and tried on a firefighter’s uniform. At lunch students watched a special presentation about electrical safety put on by Warren Rural Electric Cooperative (RECC).
Nationwide, the Progressive Agriculture Foundation has educated more than 1.3 million children since it began Agriculture Safety Days® in 1995. The KY Partnership’s Progressive Agriculture Safety Day® has impacted roughly 6000 local students over the past twenty years.
