Winning teachers must design a project that includes the production of agricultural crops and/or activities related to successfully growing and producing food or fiber. Examples include wheat, corn, oats, peanuts, cotton, fruits, vegetables, honey bees, composting, vermiculture, soil nutrition, and other effective farming practices.
