Promotion, Education & Safety
Agriculture plays an important role in all our lives. Farm Bureau's Promotion and Education program offers a variety of opportunities for you to get involved. The program is coordinated through the NDFB Promotion & Education Committee, which is comprised of individuals elected to their positions in each of NDFB's nine districts. If you would like to help, contact Joey Myers, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow the P&E Committee on Facebook.
On Your Table - Members of the Promotion and Education Committee are valuable contributors to our informational mini-site On Your Table. They provide blog posts, recipes and more, so that consumers can be assured that the food they are feeding their families is nutritious and safe.
Food, Land & People - The hands-on lessons of this program are objective in content and promote the development of critical thinking skills so that students can better understand the interrelationships among the environment, agriculture and people of the world. Contact Jill Vigesaa at email@example.com for more information. Follow FLP on Facebook.
Ag Careers 4 U - The Promotion and Education Committee is working with the NDFB Foundation to host an ag career app for students in high school and college to help increase awareness about all the agriculture-related careers avilable. The app can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play.
