The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation will award up to 175 grants to support the integration of agriculture into classroom instruction or after-school programs with an academic focus, the foundation announced this week. The Agriculture in the Classroom Teacher Supplement Grants, which award $250 apiece, are designed to help teachers initiate new projects or expand existing projects to promote agriculture literacy in students. Preschool through 12th grade teachers, librarians and after-school program coordinators at Iowa schools are eligible to apply. Grants must relate to social studies, science, math, language arts or 21st-century skills and integrate agriculture into the learning. The deadline is Jan. 10; more information is available online.
