VERMILION COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) – More than 300 kids stuffed the Vermilion County fairgrounds Wednesday. That was for Progressive Ag Safety Day.
Students discovered about grain bins, all-terrain car safety, even vitamin and mindfulness.
Organizers mentioned they hope college students will take what they be taught, apply it to their lives, and unfold that data to others.
“These are fifth and sixth graders. They can go home and share things with their parents. They can share things with their younger siblings that they learned and maybe we have a ripple effect not just those 325 kids, but more past that,” Amy Rademaker, well being and farm safety coordinator for Carle Hospital, mentioned.
This marks the primary occasion of the 12 months. Another program is ready subsequent week in Gibson City. Organizers journey round to totally different locations and train well being and safety to as many college students as potential.
