Monsanto Fund: Finalist for America's Farmers Grow Rural Education
Mead Public Schools has qualified as a finalist in the 2016 America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education program!
Mead's grant application was reviewed by a panel of math and science educators and selected as one of the strongest submissions in your region. Mead is now among an elite group of finalists being considered by the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Farmer Advisory Council to receive a grant.
The Farmer Advisory Council, comprised of farmer-leaders from across the country with a vested interest in agriculture and education, are reviewing applications now and will meet in late July to select the winning grant applications from the pool of finalists. Winners will be announced by August 1st.
Grow Rural Education grants are highly competitive and winning applications receive rigorous review by teachers and by farmers. Mead Public Schools is to be commended for making it this far into the process, and we wish Mead Public Schools the best of luck as the farmers read and score applications and as they meet to select the winning applications.
The Monsanto Fund applauds Mead's commitment to strengthening rural education and is proud to support you as you work to enhance math and science curricula for your students.
