The County Activities of Excellence competition was developed to identify and honor the outstanding, innovative programs or activities conducted at the county level that meet the overall goals of the organization. The program also encourages KFB members to share their ideas with others who may benefit or be able to replicate a successful program in their own county.

Webster County Farm Bureau was recognized for its involvement in encouraging farmers to purchase 4'x4' metal signs, each designed with full color pictures that promote agricultural safety.  The signs are displayed on the member's farms for the public to see as a reminder that farm safety is important.

In addition to the safety signs purchased by farmers, they provided 18"x24" roadside caution signs that are displayed on roads throughout the county as a reminder to be alert to farm equipment on the road.
