Jami Dellifield, Family and Consumer Sciences Educator with OSU Extension in Hardin County, was honored and awarded at the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation Annual Banquet with the first ever Yvonne Lesicko Perseverance Prize, or Y Prize for short, for her innovative work on farmer mental health initiatives that brought together so many for the “Got Your Back” campaign.
“As the 2021 Y Prize award winner, Dellifield will be given a platform to share her work and the efforts of Ohio State University Extension for farm stress and mental health. Dellifield will be a presenter at the 2022 Young Ag Professionals Winter Leadership Experience. All of this is part of the award’s goal of lessening the stigma surrounding mental health issues.” Ohio Farm Bureau
