Hillsborough County Farm Bureau Federation Women’s Committee

This program is open to any Farm Bureau Women interested in participating. The women’s committee is involved in many different projects with a focus on agriculture education and promotion.

Some of the women’s committee projects are:
Youth Speech Contest – Youth between the ages of 14-18 have an opportunity to compete at county level, the County winner will then go to district competition and the District winner will go to state competition. The purpose is to promote a stronger interest and clearer understanding of the many aspects of agriculture and give youth the opportunity to gain knowledge, appreciation, and understanding of agriculture and help to promote its many values and virtues. Limit to 5 minutes. Click here for an application, rules, prizes and topics

Ag-Venture – This is an opportunity to tell the story of our county farming operations to third graders in Hillsborough County, this event is held at the Florida State Fair Grounds several times each year. Click here for more information

 

Food Check Out Day – Held in February, allows the women to get out into the public and promote that: as Americans we enjoy the safest, most abundant and most affordable food supply on earth. This event brings awareness to the fact that it takes just five weeks for the average American to earn enough disposable income to pay for his or her family’s food supply for the entire year. (Based on Agriculture Department Statistics)

These are just a few of our projects. We invite you to come and join us. It is the goal of the Women’s Committee to develop new leaders and we welcome anyone interested in participating. Just contact Michelle Williamson at women@hcfarmbureau.org
