Deadline For FAITC Teacher Grants Is October 1
General education teachers who teach pre-kindergarten through 12th grade in Florida are encouraged to apply for Florida Agriculture in the Classroom Inc.’s 2010-11 Teacher Grant program.
The deadline for applications is October 1. The application and guidelines are on the organization’s web site at www.agtag.org.
Projects that educate students about Florida agriculture are required, and can include school gardens, alternative growing system projects and other agriculture-related programs. Descriptions of teacher grant projects funded in the past can also be found on Florida Agriculture in the Classroom’s web site.
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom is a Gainesville-based, non-profit organization charged with educating students about where their food, fiber and fuel comes from and is funded by sales of the agriculture specialty license plate called the “Ag Tag.”
