Agriculture in the Classroom

To apply for the project funding, please complete this form and outline the project, its goals, and the desired outcomes. Projects may be, but are not limited to, units culminating in a field trip, classroom lesson supplies, or career fairs.
Be creative and develop an interesting, valuable agricultural experience for your students. Grants cannot be used to fund transportation, consumable products such as food, or to pay for presenters.
