Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions associated with it, Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom is canceling most summer training events.
“It is always difficult to make the decision to cancel a series of events that we know teachers and other educators were looking forward to, but the health and safety of our staff and attendees is a top priority,” said Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom Coordinator Darlene Arneson. “We hope to offer similar programming in the future when restrictions have been lifted.”
Event cancelations and updates include:
- One-day trainings scheduled on July 9 in Oshkosh, August 14 in Oconto Falls and August 18 in New Richmond.
- Summer bus tour in Green County has been postponed to 2021.
The Back-to-School Kick-Off meeting at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center on August 22 is still scheduled to take place.
The deadline to apply for the MORE Grant has been extended until May 10. The training associated with these grants will be determined at a later date.
