National Children’s Center for Rural and Agricultural Health and Safety staff engaged with approximately 1,300 students and teachers at the National FFA Convention & Expo, held in late 2021, in Indianapolis, IN. 

Marsha Salzwedel and Melissa Ploeckelman joined nine other agricultural safety-oriented organizations in a dedicated safety expo area. Salzwedel and Ploeckelman played “Safety Jeopardy” with visitors and featured promotion of the Agricultural Youth Work Guidelines and AgInjuryNews. They also administered a short survey on behalf of the Upper Midwest Agricultural Safety and Health Center.

The National Children’s Center is based in the Marshfield Clinic Research Institute and is one of 11 agricultural centers funded by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the only center dedicated to childhood agricultural injury prevention.
