In 2020, Simpson County raised $8,970 through the Ag Tag Voluntary Donation program. That money that goes directly to Kentucky 4-H, Kentucky FFA and Kentucky Proud to support our agriculture community here locally and across the Commonwealth.
Agriculture is vital to the livelihood of every Kentuckian and it is through programs like Kentucky 4-H and Kentucky FFA that we continue to instill these values in youth. Each simple $10 donation made when renewing an Ag Tag culminates to have a major impact on the youth of Simpson County.
Kentucky 4-H is one of the most important and influential youth programs in our state and our county. Across Kentucky over 290,000 youth ages 9 to 19 learn about leadership, citizenship and life skills in “learn-by-doing” experiences such as communications and public speaking, through agriculture projects like livestock judging, science projects with robotics, 4-H camp, Teen Conference, and many other 4-H programs and activities.
As we look to March for 2021 Ag Tag renewals, we ask that you remember to make your voluntary donations on each farm license plate you renew. If every farmer renewing an Ag Tag were to make the voluntary $10 donation, over $16,000 could be raised! Think of the impact that could have on your community and its future leaders!
Please help us in growing leaders, strengthening the agriculture community and funding opportunities for Simpson County youth this March through Ag Tag voluntary donations!
