Help Cornell Grade School Compete for a Grant of $10,000
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.
While a U.S. Supreme Court decision on whether to consider a legal challenge filed against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's total maximum daily load, or TMDL, in the Chesapeake Bay region, a new poll conducted on behalf of the American Farm Bureau Federation finds the majority of Bay area landowners surveyed want water quality issues dealt with on a local level.
