Ag Safety Day will welcome nearly 500 students in K-6

    Ag Safety Day will be held Monday at the Chase County Fairgrounds.
    Students in K-6 from Chase County and Wauneta-Palisade Schools, as well as some home-schooled children, will spend the day learning about ag-related topics from chemical safety, electrical safety, ATV safety and more.
    Katie Miller will speak to parents and the public Sunday at 7 p.m. in the school auditorium about technology safety.
    Miller will also speak to the younger students on Monday and to 7-12 students on Tuesday.
    Ag Safety Day coordinator, Chris Tomky, said they are expecting almost 500 youths between CCS, Wauneta-Palisade and home-schooled children.
    One of the sessions will include chemical safety, which Tomky says will be a fun, messy project for the kids as they learn how adding different chemicals to each other can change what they do.
    Personnel from Southwest Public Power District will conduct a session on electrical safety, and Susan Harris from the University of Nebraska at Kearney will bring the ATV simulator to teach youths about ATV safety.
