The County Activities of Excellence program is an AFBF initiative that celebrates outstanding county Farm Bureau projects – unique, volunteer programming at the local level. Activities are recognized in the areas of Education & Ag Promotion, Member Services, Public Relations & Information, Leadership Development, Policy Implementation and Safety.

Through the program, up to 24 innovative county Farm Bureau activities from across the nation will be selected to display at the 2025 American Farm Bureau Convention and Trade Show in San Antonio, Texas, Jan. 25-27. Individual county and multicounty CAE winning entries will receive four complimentary registrations and a $4,500 cash award to be used toward travel and display costs to attend the convention.

AFBF is accepting applications from county Farm Bureaus through Aug. 30 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.
