The goggles are meant to show what it is like to write while having an impairment. It was part of the disability awareness portion of Farm Safety Day held last Thursday for Banner County elementary students.

The Kimball/Banner County Extension Office held its annual Farm Safety Day last week for Banner County elementary students. They attended a variety of sessions throughout the day on topics such as disability awareness, tractor safety, electricity safety, fire safety, proper lifting, chemical safety and more.

Later in the demonstration, a High West crew showed the students how dangerous it was to fly a kite around power lines.
