Indiana AgrAbility/Breaking New Ground of Purdue University is again sponsoring The Bridging Horizons Community Service Contest, which challenges organizations to complete service projects to assist people with disabilities in their communities. In return, winning groups can receive a cash award of $500, $250, or $100. As an added incentive to participate, the first five groups to submit a completed project will receive $100 simply for completing a qualifying project and submitting their report by the deadline of June 1.
Any 4-H or Junior Leaders club is eligible to enter the Bridging Horizons Community Service Contest, as are FFA chapters, Extension Homemakers, church groups, and others. Please take a minute to review details about the contest by reviewing the attached brochure. You can also view 50 project ideas by clicking here.

Indiana AgrAbility Project/Breaking New Ground Outreach Program is a USDA-sponsored program that assists farmers, ranchers, and other agricultural workers with disabilities. While the term “disability” often brings to mind conditions such as spinal cord injuries and amputations, AgrAbility addresses not only these but also many other conditions, such as arthritis, back impairments, and behavioral health issues.
