I know you are down at Jekyll for the GVATA Conference but I wanted to go ahead and send you some information about the Georgia Agribusiness Council's 2014 Dr. Joe B Crane Classroom Grant program. We are doing up to 4, non-renewable, $500 classroom grants that are available to any Georgia public or private school teacher that wants to prepare a lesson for their class focusing on some aspect of agriculture. We had 16 applications last year and the winners were as follows:
East Jackson Comprehensive High School (Greg Gilman)
Elbert County Middle School (Dixie McCarty)
Burke County Middle School (Allie Crockett)
We would like for you to pass along the application and the link to the application so that you could help us get information out about the program. The deadline to apply for a Classroom Grant is October 10, 2014. I am attaching a copy of the application, and you will find the link to that application below:
We will happily accept applications starting now, since many teachers might have more time now that they would when school gets started back in August. Thank you once again for all your help.
