America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives rural public school districts the opportunity to compete for grants of $10,000 or $25,000 for crucial science and math programs. Eligible farmers can nominate local public school districts for a grant. So, ask all of the local farmers you know to nominate our school today. Farmers in 1,326 counties across 40 states have the opportunity to keep rural schools growing by nominating the local public school district of their choice to apply for a grant. In 2016, the Monsanto Fund will again award $2.3 million to rural school districts. Grant applications will be judged based on merit, need and community support. The more farmers we have nominate our school district, the more it demonstrates community support and can help strengthen our application. So, the more nominations we get, the better chances we have of being selected because it shows Monsanto that we have a greater need for the funds. Even if you know someone else who has nominated us, please add your nomination to give more credence to our application! For additional . . .
Dear Patrons, You know your child’s education is important for their future. But, it is also crucial to the growth of rural America and the future generations that will call this area home. It’s one of the many reasons we need your help asking the farmers in our community to nominate our school district for the opportunity to compete for a math and science grant of $10,000 and $25,000 through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund. For the fifth consecutive year, the Monsanto Fund is gearing up to invest $2.3 million to strengthen math and science programs in rural public school districts. Through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, farmers can nominate the eligible local public school district of their choice. After our school district is nominated, we can submit our application to compete for a grant. This year, the Wauneta-Palisade FFA would like to apply for a $10,000 grant, and we plan to use the money to build a greenhouse. You can help us by encouraging all the farmers you know to nominate our school district, and by spreading the word . . .
