9 Teachers From Around The U.S. Honored For Promoting Agriculture
Nine teachers from across the U.S. have been recognized by the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture because of their outstanding efforts to promote agricultural literacy, according to the Cattle Network.
The news source reported that teachers will each receive a scholarship that will help to fund their trip to the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in Loveland, Colorado. The Foundation, through the White-Reinhardt Fund for Education, sponsors the scholarships as a way to help promote the agricultural sector through the education of the next generation of farmers.
This year’s recipients were from Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Illinois, Arkansas, North Dakota, South Carolina, Maine, Florida, and each showed exemplary work in the classroom and motivated their students to learn about the sector in innovative ways.
