TEACHER OF THE YEAR AWARD
North Carolina Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom (NCFB AITC) program will honor a practicing NC teacher who emphasizes agricultural concepts across the various areas of study. Agriculture is an important part of everyone’s life. Clothing, food, fuel, housing, medicine, and much more are rooted in agriculture. Agricultural issues can support the teaching of many academic disciplines.
Recognizing this, we would like to honor educators across North Carolina that are effectively integrating agriculture into the classroom curriculum. Enclosed are the award guidelines, and the application. Teachers will be asked to submit award applications that describe their methods for incorporating agricultural concepts into their classrooms.
