Yamaha Grants $8,500 to ACT Chapters Promoting OHV Awareness

As part of the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative (OAI), Yamaha recently provided $8,500 to four chapters of the National Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow (NACT) organization to promote safe, responsible use of ATV and Side-by-Side (SxS) vehicles in agricultural settings.

Yamaha transitioned its longstanding support of the NACT organization from an independent scholarship program to the OAI this year to allow for expanded funding, and increasing the number of chapters receiving financial support. The granted funds go toward helping students attend the annual Ag Media Summit (AMS), the largest gathering of agricultural media professionals in the country, and a primary career networking and professional development opportunity for ACT members. Over the past nine years, Yamaha has invested nearly $50,000 into the program.

To apply for the Yamaha-ACT grants, chapters are required to develop educational communication campaigns and materials focusing on safe, responsible use of ATV and SxS vehicles on farming and ranching operations.
