Programs

Book shelves shaped like barns are donated to Delaware Elementary Schools to increase ag-literacy in our youth. A set of books, including AFBF’s “Book of the Year,” are also donated with each Book Barn.

Book barns have been placed in 21 schools between all 3 counties since it’s inception!

Any educators interested in a Book Barn and set of books should contact DEFB at (302) 697-3183.

Students in 6th and 7th grade are encouraged to participate in the Ag in the Classroom Essay Contest! Students are challenged to write a 500 word essay based on a predetermined prompt.

NEW IN 2017! Students in 9th and 10th grade are encouraged to participate the Ag in the Classroom Essay Contest! Students are challenged to write a 1,000 word essay based on a predetermined prompt.

The winning classroom teacher will receive a Staples gift card and top three students will all receive cash prizes.

In 2015, The P&E Committee launched the Rural Road Safety Program.

The program is designed to teach drivers the importance of safe driving around farming equipment on Delaware roadways.
