Funding Available for Wisconsin Teachers

The best way to educate people about agriculture is by starting early.
One way the Wisconsin Farm Bureau is encouraging education is through classroom funding. Teachers can apply for the 2011 White-Reinhart funds for $500 to fund current or existing agricultural programs. This money can be used for a variety of activities related to agriculture from grades K through 12. The ideal programs will encourage and interest students in the agriculture industry.
Scholarships are also available for teachers seeking funding to attend the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference. These scholarships cover travel expenses for teachers from grades K through 12 interested in learning innovated ways to bring agriculture into the classroom. Teachers must use the information on fuel, agriculture and nutrition to educate students and excite them about agriculture.
Those interested in applying for school or personal scholarships should contact the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation at 608-828-5719 with any questions.
