The National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety was proud to co-sponsor National Young Worker Ag Safety Day on October 20. The Children’s Center celebrated by unveiling its newest resource: “Next Generation of Youth Agricultural Work Guidelines”, at the National FFA Convention in Indianapolis. Marsha Salzwedel and Tammy Ellis engaged more than 2,700 students and FFA advisers at the National Farm Medicine Center booth.
In addition, Salzwedel addressed a general session of the National Association of Supervisors of Agricultural Education, held concurrently with the FFA convention. The audience of 120 or so represented nearly every U.S. state and territory. Salzwedel shared information about youth ag work guidelines, as well as a grain safety curriculum developed in conjunction with the Grain Handling Safety Coalition.
