The Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation (IALF) is making mini-grants available to support the integration of agriculture into classroom instruction or after-school programs with an academic focus.
The Agriculture in the Classroom Teacher Supplement Grants, made possible through support from the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, are designed to help teachers promote agriculture literacy in students.
Teachers can apply for $200 grants. Up to 170 grants will be awarded to teachers. Preschool through 12th grade teachers, librarians and after-school program coordinators at Iowa schools are eligible to apply. Grants must relate to science or language arts and integrate agriculture into the learning.
The deadline for application is Jan. 10, 2017. To apply online or for more information, visit www.iowaagliteracy.org.
