Oklahoma Farm Bureau was awarded the American Farm Bureau New Horizon Award Sunday, January 21, at the 2024 AFBF Convention in Salt Lake City for OKFB’s Capitol Camp youth legislative experience.
The OKFB Capitol Camp is a two-day immersive mock legislative experience started in 2022 for 4-H and FFA members who are high school juniors and seniors to help them understand Oklahoma’s legislative branch and the lawmaking process.
The New Horizon Award recognizes one state Farm Bureau in each AFBF membership category for implementing a new program or event. OKFB received the award in AFBF’s membership category four.
Oklahoma Farm Bureau was also recognized with four AFBF State Awards of Excellence at the 2024 AFBF Convention. State Farm Bureaus are recognized for outstanding achievement in four possible award areas: advocacy, coalitions & partnerships, engagement & outreach and leadership & business development.
