To help you celebrate National Agriculture Week, March 22-28, 2020, staff from the Nebraska Farm Bureau Foundation and the Nebraska Farm Bureau, have compiled a resource kit for your county to make Ag Week planning, promotion, and celebration easy.
The kit includes a list of ideas counties can use in their communities to celebrate Ag Week. You can download:
- Bookmarks with agriculture facts for your local schools or library
- Placemats for use at your local restaurants
- Coloring page
- Suggested activities
- Newspaper ad, and
- Social media posts
We would recommend that you use a local printer if you can to print any materials you need for Ag Week. Download the files from the links below. The Foundation will provide county Farm Bureaus 300 sheets total as requested for no cost. Cost per additional sheet is $0.14. To request printed materials, please fill out the online form or contact the Foundation or call at (402) 421-4747 before February 15. All materials will be mailed the week of February 18.
