FW: Teach Ag Poster Build - piece 2

State supervisors – please forward this to agricultural educators in your state. Thanks!

National Teach Ag Day will be March 24, 2011 – mark your calendar!

We’ve got a great way to get your students thinking about a career in agricultural education, plus a chance for you to win a $350 grant for classroom supplies.  We’ve also decided to expand our contest to our student members by giving away a $100 scholarship.  

Take part in our Teach Ag poster build!

To participate:
1.        We’ve taken our new Teach Ag poster and divided it into 8 pieces.  We’ll be emailing a piece or two each week until FFA Convention, or watch Communities of Practice, the Teach Ag Facebook page, @NAAE on Twitter,  or the Teach Ag webpage for the pieces as well.
2.        When a new piece is released, print it and hang it on your wall. Add each successive piece, building a 22 in. x 34 in. poster. Use it as a tool to talk with your students about all the possibilities that come with a career in agricultural education.  If you’re a pre-service member, just hang it up where you’ve got space!
3.        If you’re coming to the FFA Convention, snap a photo of your completed poster hanging in your classroom, and bring it to the NAAE Booth at Teacher's World during the National FFA Convention. Show us the photo, and we'll enter you in the drawing for the classroom supplies grant or the scholarship!

*You don't have to print the photo of your completed poster. Just take it with your phone, your iPod, your digital camera, or whatever you have, and show us the image on the screen.
Piece two  is attached – good luck!  If you missed the first piece, download it and get full contest details at www.naae.org/teachag/tag-promo.php.
