Here’s a wonderful opportunity for schools in California – the Agricultural Awareness and Literacy Foundation (AAL) has announced over $5,000 in grants are available to fund dairy industry-related fieldtrips.
Through funding provided by the California Milk Advisory Board, AAL is offering $4 per student towards the cost of transportation and/or the entrance fee for a dairy focused field trip where students will spend the majority of the field trip learning about dairy farms and/or dairy processing.
The grant guidelines are as follows:
Grants will be awarded on a first come, first served basis until the grant funds have been used.
Only public schools or private schools with non-profit tax ID numbers are eligible.
Only one grant will be made per school.
One teacher may apply for an entire grade level/group participating in the field trip.
To be eligible, each classroom must complete one of seven free dairy related education programs.
Teachers must submit 2-3 pictures of completed assignments and/or students and their work with your application.
