Georgia Agribusiness Council Grant -- Deadline is Friday, October 11th.
See message below.

Ag Ed Region Team Members,

I hope this message finds you all well. My name is Michael Pisciotta and I
serve as the Public Affairs Coordinator for the Georgia Agribusiness
Council (GAC). One way that we live our mission at GAC is to advance the
business of agriculture in the state of Georgia through educational
initiatives. I have outreached to the Region Coordinators directly before,
but I wanted to let you know that the Georgia Agribusiness Council* awards
up to four $500 Classroom Grants annually* to fund special curriculum
enrichment programs aimed at teaching agriculture as part of the Dr. Joe B.
Crane Classroom Grant program. *The postmarked deadline to apply for these
grants is this Friday, Oct. 11.* I have attached the short application for
the 2013 Dr. Joe B. Crane Classroom Grants in hopes that you may share it
with the ag educators in your area. I know there are some ag teachers that
don't have the county or local support that many enjoy, and they could use
this money in outstanding ways to benefit their students.

Here is a direct link to the application that can be downloaded online can
be found below:

Thank you again and best contact me if you have any questions.
