Award to a Mississippi K-12 classroom teacher for excellence in teaching agricultural concepts in the classroom. Funding is intended to give the winning teacher an opportunity to learn more about teaching agriculture by attending a state conference. The program’s objective is to encourage educators to teach more about food and fiber systems and the critical role of agriculture in the economy and society.

Teachers will submit a 250-300 word essay on a program or an activity that has been used in the classroom during the school year using agriculture curriculum. The teacher selected for the grant will be asked to participate in the 2019 Mississippi Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Conference in Jackson, Mississippi. Funding will also be provided to enable a teacher to have an expense-paid trip to the National Ag in the Classroom Conference to be held in Portland, Maine, June 26-29, 2018.

The Mississippi Ag in the Classroom program aims to aid those teachers who are looking for new methods, materials, and activities to improve their classroom instruction about agriculture or make existing agriculture courses more interesting.
