MAITC Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award
One MAITC Outstanding Teacher Award will be given to an educator currently engaged in classroom instruction at the K-12 grade levels. This award will recognize the teacher for his/her creative efforts to teach students about the importance of agriculture.
The winning Minnesota teacher will receive $500 and have up to $1,500 of his/her related expenses paid to attend the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference June 26-28, 2018 in Portland, Maine. If the winning teacher chooses not to attend the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference, he/she will not receive the $1,500 designated for travel expenses.
Minnesota licensed teachers that are currently engaged in integrating agricultural concepts into non-agricultural education classroom settings at the K-12 grade levels are eligible. This may be an individual teacher or a team of teachers. Please note: Only one award and cash prize totaling $2,000 will be made per team. High School and Middle School Agricultural Educators are not eligible for this award.
