Proposals Sought for Ag in the Classroom Programs
North Dakota Ag Connection - 06/18/2019

The North Dakota Department of Agriculture (NDDA) and the North Dakota Agriculture in the Classroom Council are seeking proposals for developing and conducting educational programs and materials to help young people understand the importance of agriculture in North Dakota and in their own lives.

"Agriculture in the Classroom programs help young people learn where their food comes from and how to make better food choices for themselves," Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring said. "The program provides teachers with curricula and class lesson development materials, training seminars, a magazine, website and other tools to make agriculture part of the school day. The materials provided support all core areas of study." Goehring said about $100,000 will be available for the programs in this biennium.

Information on grant opportunities and on preparing and submitting proposals is available at www.nd.gov/ndda/aitcgrants or by contacting Melanie Gaebe at 701-328-4764 or mgaebe@nd.gov.

Proposals must be received by 4 p.m. CDT on July 15.
