The Promotion and Education program is a dynamic group of Farm Bureau leaders who develop, implement and promote projects and programs that build awareness and understanding of agriculture and provide leadership development for the agricultural community.
What Does the Committee Work On?
The Promotion and Education committee takes pride in promoting agriculture in their region of Wisconsin with these resources.
- The Promotion and Education Committee helps host an Ag in the Classroom essay contest for fourth and fifth grade students. Students are asked to write about an essay about a Wisconsin agriculture-related topic. Finalists are selected from each of the nine Wisconsin Farm Bureau districts with one of the finalists being selected as the state winner.
- The Children’s Agriculture Book Series is an ongoing effort by the Promotion and Education Committee to promote books that accurately portray modern agriculture to elementary-age children.

Our Food Link: Our Food Link is a year-round program that Wisconsin Farm Bureau uses to effectively reach consumers of all ages and backgrounds with information about modern agriculture. This outreach is more important than ever because the average American is at least three generations removed from the farm. Throughout the year, Farm Bureau members help people in their communities to connect with sources of food, fuel and fiber.
