AG EDUCATION SHOWCASE

2022 IAFE CONVENTION | AG EDUCATION SHOWCASE OVERVIEW
March 28, 2022


OBJECTIVE

We all promote agriculture at our fairs, and educate the public about food, fiber, and fuel. At the 2022
IAFE Convention, we want to showcase what our members are doing like never before.

 

APPROACH
During Convention, we plan to create a hands-on, interactive showcase of Ag Education projects,
programs, and exhibits.

 

We are asking member fairs to pack up the best Ag Education programming they have to offer and bring it to Indianapolis to be part of this showcase. Large, small and everything in between is welcome. We want to SEE what you are doing and SHARE it with everyone attending convention.

 

What are you doing at your fairs that you can bring to convention, or replicate at convention? Examples
include:

  • Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

  • Web sites and digital content

  • Simulators

  • Mobile classrooms (trailers)

  • Buildings and exhibits

  • Games and activities

  • Printed pieces and/or signage

  • Sponsor activation

It would be great if you can bring the actual item/items for everyone to experience, but if that’s not possible, consider what you can bring to represent what you are doing (i.e. videos, photos, displays, binders, etc.). This is more than simply entering a contest, although many of the items showcased will be contest winners. This is about creating an environment where IAFE members can experience your  Ag Education programming just like visitors to your fair.
