Jr. MANRRS Grant Opportunity
The National Teach Ag Campaign, managed by the National Association of Agricultural Educators, is offering eight grants worth $1500 each to preservice agricultural education clubs or groups to develop and execute a collaborative and mentoring relationship with a Jr. MANRRS chapter in the area. If a Jr. MANRRS chapter does not exist, the preservice cohort may use the funds to start a Jr. MANRRS chapter in the area. These grants are part of a pilot program that aims to:
- Establish positive relationships among preservice agricultural education majors and the Jr. MANRRS chapter members.
- Plan, create, and deliver agriculture-based content to Jr. MANRRS members through innovative and engaging formats.
- Practice teaching and lesson execution.
Grant applications are due March 24. The grant application and more details may be found at: https://www.surveygizmo.com/s3/4792011/2019-2020-JR-MANRRS-Grant
