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 Tigges, at email@example.com. Follow the P&E Committee on Facebook.
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. NDFB coordinates FLP workshops for the North Dakota Ag in the Classroom Council. To learn more click here or contact Gail Bakko at firstname.lastname@example.org.
North Dakota Living Ag Classroom - This program is a collaborative effort of many agriculture and commodity groups. A Promotion & Education Committee member represents NDFB in the planning of the event in their district.

Scholarships - NDFB oversees a variety of scholarships to help those not only studying for careers, but for those who are attending college to change careers. Click here for information on the scholarships.
Safety - Through education, North Dakota Farm Bureau's safety program helps thousands of individuals become more aware of a variety of dangers on the farm and in the household. Administered by the Promotion and Education Committee, the program is carried out through a network of outstanding volunteers.
North Dakota Farm Bureau's Always Be Careful on the Farm (ABC) program was developed in 1991. Since then thousands of children have been trained.
