The purpose of the Women’s Committee County Grant is to allow counties an opportunity to provide an agriculture education experience in their respective county. The Women’s Committee County Grant can cover any Farm Bureau sponsored activity relating to Agriculture in The Classroom, American Farm Bureau Foundation For Agriculture or other agriculture education sources. Women’s Committee County Grant application awards will be selected by the Utah Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership State Committee.
There are two grant awards, with deadlines on March 1, 2020 and September 1, 2020. For each grant and corresponding deadline, $1,000 in grant money will be available to disperse among counties who apply. An individual county can apply for a maximum of $250 per grant and are welcome to apply to both the November and June deadlines, even if they were previously awarded. Grant checks will be sent before the activity is to begin. A written report, including photos, of the completed activity will be required to be sent back to Clayton Beckstead, no later than 10 days after the event is completed.
Ideas: County Fair Booth or activity, Farm Field Day, Ag in a Bag, Women’s Committee Short Story or Video Contest and other Women’s Committee projects or visiting a school with an agriculture activity.
**A timeline and budget plan must be included with your application. The county need for the grant will be heavily weighted in the selection process. ***
Please send the completed grant application to Susan Furner, firstname.lastname@example.org or Utah Farm Bureau, Attn: Susan Furner, 9865 South State, Sandy UT 84070. Counties must submit a County Grant Reporting Form and pictures of the event/activity upon completion.
