Maple Contest and Equipment Grant
Tucker Mountain Challenge
Thanks to the New Hampshire Maple Producers Association, we are offering the Tucker Mountain Challenge (formerly the Felker Award Classroom Division). The goal is to have your students produce a quart of maple syrup while learning about the science, math, social studies and language arts involved in the process. If you want to be in the running for a $2,000 prize, just follow some simple steps:
- complete and submit application by 1/15/18
- with the help of an assigned mentor, collect roughly 10 gallons of sap and boil it down to 1 quart of syrup
- submit the syrup to the NHAITC by 4/15/18 to be judged at a public venue in May
NHAITC Equipment Grants
Apply for $200 grants in either tapping/processing equipment or supplies to build an evaporator. Applications due by 12/15/17.
