Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of $500 to Oklahoma PreK-12 educators for programs that integrate agricultural literacy into the classroom curriculum. Projects must support students' understanding of the fiber and food system. Funding may be used for teaching supplies, food items for lesson activities, classroom equipment, and children's books.

Project objectives must promote students' understanding of the food and fiber system and support the use of the Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom program in the overall classroom curriculum. Because the primary purpose for this grant is to encourage the use of the Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom program, project proposals must be directly related to Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom lessons and activities. A list of Ag in the Classroom lessons and the activities to go with the lessons are required.

Acceptable uses for grant funds include (Note: All activities must be linked to specific Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom lessons):

- Teaching supplies for use in teaching Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom lessons.
- Food items for use with Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom lessons activities, including recipes found in the Food and Fun section of the website, or in the Fruits, Nuts, and Veggies, Oh My Booklet. Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom and the Oklahoma Pork Council support the promotion of healthy food choices for students. When requesting food items, applicants are requested to consider the health benefits of the foods being offered to their students.
- Children's books about agriculture. (Applicants are requested to include book titles and to explain how the books will support teaching specific Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom lessons.)
- Equipment for use in teaching lessons from the OAITC website, including incubators, sewing machines, hot plates, convection ovens, lab equipment, etc. Funding for purchase of equipment will be limited to applicants who partner with other teachers in the building and whose proposals include more than one lesson, reflecting a familiarity with lessons and resources available on the website and a commitment to the OAITC program.
