For 75 years, the CHS Foundation has helped develop the next generation of ag leaders for lifelong success.  In honor of the milestone, the foundation is awarding $75,000 in grants for K-12 teachers to implement a project at their school that will engage students in experiential agricultural education.  Funds will be awarded for projects that have a strong tie to agriculture and demonstrate how they will engage students in agricultural topics.


Teachers are encouraged to dream big, but ideas include implementing a new ag class or pathway or purchasing agriculture equipment for hands-on learning.  Written and video submissions will be accepted until October 1st.  First place will be awarded $20,000, second place will receive $15,000, and third place will receive $10,000. An additional 12 finalists will be selected, and each receive $2,500.


The initiative is open to any K-12 educators in a CHS trade territory.
