Ayesha Badiola from Steinbach, Manitoba is the winner of SAFE Work Manitoba’s annual SAFE Farms drawing contest, winning her an iPad and a spot in the 2017 SAFE Farms calendar.
“While Ayesha’s picture was drawn randomly from all contest entries, I want to commend her for her very colourful and artistic take on storing chemicals on the farm safely,” said Jamie Hall, Chief Operating Officer, SAFE Work Manitoba.
This year’s SAFE Farms drawing contest received 147 entries from children across the province between six and 12 years of age. Children were asked to submit pictures that show how to find a safer way when faced with one of four common hazards on the farm: livestock, grain, farm equipment and chemicals.
In addition to winning an iPad, Ayesha is guaranteed a spot in the 2017 SAFE Farms calendar, which will highlight the best of this year’s contest entries. Drawings included in the calendar will be selected based on number of ‘Likes’ received through SAFE Work Manitoba’s Facebook page.
