Educational Mini-Grant Awarded to Lewis County Farm Bureau

 

Louisville, KY (December 1, 2017) – Lewis County Farm Bureau was honored as one of six recipients of Kentucky Farm Bureau (KFB) Educational Mini-Grant. All six recipients were recognized during KFB’s annual meeting in Louisville.

The Mini-Grant is a special project of the Kentucky Farm Bureau Women’s Program and administered through the Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation. One-time grants of up to $500 are offered to county Farm Bureaus on a competitive basis to help fund projects that result in increased agricultural literacy. Priority is given to those programs demonstrating a need for financial support.

Lewis County Farm Bureau was recognized for purchasing each one of the approximately 225 fourth grade Lewis County students the ag book ‘The Most Wonderful Dream.'

In addition to Lewis County Farm Bureau’s award, Mini-Grants were also given to the Farm Bureaus in Boyle, Fayette, Marion, McCracken, and Webster counties.

 

Jennifer Meadows of Lewis County accepts an award of recognition from Vicki Bryant, chair of the Kentucky Farm Bureau state Women’s Committee.
