America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education is back and nominations are open! Please nominate your local school. No purchase is necessary please forward the entry information to others who may be interested. Grower support for schools is taken into account during the selection process so the more people that nominate a school the better chance they have!
Farmers again have the opportunity to nominate their local public school district for a grant of $10,000 or $25,000 for math and science education. Once a school is nominated they will receive the grant paperwork to complete and return to finalize their entry. Nominations are accepted now through April 1, and winners will be announced in early August.
Farmers can nominate three easy ways:
- Online: www.GrowRuralEducation.com
- Call: 877-267-3332
- Fax/Mail: Through the paper forms (available on the program website)
Since the program began in 2011, the Monsanto Fund has partnered with the America’s Farmers effort to provide over $7 million in financial support to rural public school districts. It enables us to invest in our communities in a way that is meaningful to farmers and exemplifies our commitment to rural America.
