Each year the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture and the National Agriculture in the Classroom Consortium recognizes exceptional teachers by presenting them with the Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Award. This competitive program recognizes state selected "Teacher of the Year" recipients for their successful efforts in teaching agricultural concepts in their curriculum. Click on the links below to learn more about previous award winners. Recipients of the distinguished award receive an honorarium of $500 and up to $1,500 for travel related expenses to the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference. If you are interested in applying, please contact your state AITC program leader. State Contact signatures are required on the application. This is an opportunity for all of us to celebrate agricultural literacy enthusiasm and successful teaching about agriculture. Each state is encouraged to submit a nomination.
