NATIONAL AGRICULTURE IN THE CLASSROOM CONFERENCE
CHS Registration Scholarships
For the fifth year, the CHS Foundation is sponsoring teachers from across the nation to attend the Agriculture in the Classroom Conference 'Agriculture for ME on Land and Sea' in Portland, Maine June 27-29. They are graciously providing $20,000 in scholarships to fund dozens of deserving K-12 teachers. A choice of over 80 hands-on workshops, traveling workshops, keynote speakers and networking events will provide exceptional learning opportunities for these teachers to increase their comfort level in agricultural topics and to integrate agricultural content into instruction to meet academic standards in Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, Math and Health/Nutrition. If you would like to participate in an engaging professional development experience and connect with educators from across the country, you should consider applying for this scholarship, which covers the cost of early bird registration of $435. All other travel costs are the responsibility of the individual.
Portland is the closest this conference will be to New Hampshire for at least eight years. Take advantage of this great opportunity!
Space is limited and it is filling up quickly, so register now!
The scholarship application deadline is Friday March 2, 2018.
