Please see the note below and the attached information/application. If you teach Agrscience curriculum, this is an opportunity to earn a $5,000 grant from DuPont. I hope that someone from Georgia will apply.

Subject: NSTA - Excellence in Agricultural Science Education Award



I wanted to reach out to your teachers and encourage your outstanding agricultural science teachers to apply for this $5k award sponsored by DuPont/Pioneer. The award consists of $5k, an expense paid trip to the national conference on science education, and mentorship with a DuPont/Pioneer scientist and/or facility. The deadline is not until November 30th.

This is an excellent opportunity for a Georgia agricultural science teacher to have an impact on a national level.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.


Thank you.


Kind Regards,

Amanda Upton
