Each year, the CHS Foundation and National Agriculture in the Classroom organization partner to offer a grant opportunity to Pre-K-12 teachers who have classroom projects that use agricultural concepts to teach reading, writing, math, science, social studies and more.
Applications are due Sept. 15 and teachers have until June 1, 2021 to complete the project and submit a final report. Eligible projects include classroom and schoolyard gardens, embryology projects, aquaculture projects and agricultural literacy reading programs, to name a few.
Only state-certified classroom teachers who are employed by a school district or private school are eligible to apply. Agri-science teachers may apply for the grant, but they must demonstrate how the project being proposed will reach outside their agri-science classrooms to other classes in the same school or other schools, including elementary schools. Because of school closures related to COVID-19, virtual, online projects will be considered.
Fifteen $500 grants will be awarded. Recipients will be notified by mail in October or early November.
