Jonathan Shell - elevate KY Ag with Ag tag
Kentucky Ag Connection - 02/09/2024

Growing up on a farm alongside his family, Jonathan Shell learned firsthand the lasting impact of seemingly small actions. Those early experiences instilled a deep appreciation for agriculture and ignited a passion to see it thrive in Kentucky. That's why Jonathan is a strong advocate for Kentucky 4-H and FFA, two organizations shaping the future of the state's agricultural landscape.

Both 4-H and FFA offer invaluable opportunities for young people. They nurture leadership skills, foster a love for learning, and equip youth with the knowledge and confidence to tackle future agricultural challenges. Following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather, Jonathan joined FFA in high school, discovering lifelong friendships and experiences that continue to shape his journey today.

You too can be a part of this positive impact. When renewing your farm license plate, or "Ag Tag," consider making a $10 donation. This seemingly small contribution goes a long way in supporting these crucial youth programs.

Last year, Kentucky farmers set a record, donating a staggering $735,815.88 through the Ag Tag program. These funds are divided equally between 4-H, FFA, and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA), each playing a vital role in supporting our agricultural community.

Here's how your contribution makes a difference:

4-H and FFA: Half of the donations return to local councils and chapters, enabling them to offer scholarships, leadership programs, and life-changing experiences for young people.

KDA: These funds support initiatives like the Ag Athlete of the Year awards, Kentucky Women in Agriculture, and the University of Kentucky Grain and Forage Center of Excellence.

By investing in our agricultural youth, we invest in the future of Kentucky. This year's Ag Tag campaign, "Elevating Leaders," reflects the critical role these programs play in shaping future generations of farmers and passionate advocates for agriculture.

As you renew your Ag Tag, Jonathan encourages you to consider making a $10 donation. Let's break last year's record and ensure a bright future for Kentucky agriculture. Together, we can cultivate the leaders of tomorrow and ensure the continued success of our vital agricultural industry.

Remember, every contribution, big or small, can make a lasting impact. Let's join forces with Jonathan Shell and elevate the future of Kentucky agriculture!
