Teacher Mini-Grants – Applications due October 15
Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom in conjunction with the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation offers grants of up to $100 each to pre-school through high school teachers, in a public or private school system, to fund projects that promote agricultural literacy in the classroom. Grants can be used for innovative lessons, activities, projects, resources, presentations, school fairs and other projects. Projects should focus on integrating agriculture into a variety of curriculum areas. Priority will be given to applicants for resources that will last more than one school year as opposed to funds for field trips, consumables and ‘one-time’ use.
