Teacher Mini-Grant Program
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation is offering grants 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.

Volunteer & Educator Scholarships
The purpose of the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference Educator Scholarship Program is to provide travel expense funds to educators employed by a school system to attend the national conference for the purpose of using the information gained from the conference to expand their outreach to students regarding food, fuel and fiber.
Educators employed by a school system and working in grades K-12 who have demonstrated involvement in agricultural literacy programs are eligible to apply for the scholarship.
