Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom Grant Applications

The Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom Program is accepting applications for matching grants that will be awarded to groups that promote agricultural literacy in K-12 schools. Ag in the Classroom will award up to $500 to groups sponsoring programs or projects that promote agricultural literacy. Projects considered for grants must be targeted to grades pre-K through 12 and should enhance student knowledge of the contribution made by agriculture. Projects that use funds toward an ongoing, sustainable education effort will receive preference over those that involve a one-time program. Applicants must have a matching source-funder for their project equal to the amount of the Ag in the Classroom grant. The application deadline is April 1. Interested groups or schools can get an application on the Agriculture in the Classroom website at under the Quick Links.
