“We’ll provide you with a template to design a sticker on any farm safety theme. The theme is up to you.
“It could be quads, PTOs, slurry, animals, vehicles or the importance of farmers/farming families looking after their mental and physical health.”
“With design, we want to give you the freedom to think outside the box. Come up with innovative ideas and create an image that promotes safety, health and well-being on the farm.
“With the design, we want you to write a short note (150 words maximum), explaining why you chose to enter the competition. You can discuss the importance of safety, health and well-being in the farms and what it means to you,” the spokesperson added.
“The sticker can be affixed to farm machinery, cars, vehicles and around the farm or home to shine the light and increase awareness of the vital role that safety and emotional well-being play in life. execution of work in the farms.”
To raise awareness
The organizers will circulate the winning sticker to the various agricultural organizations, communities and networks and will win a prize.
The competition aims to highlight and raise awareness of safety, health and welfare on the farm at all skill levels.
Additionally, the organizers believe it gives everyone the opportunity to get creative and highlight what safety, health and welfare means on the farm.
