Wisconsin Farm Bureau’s Ag in the Classroom program will kick off the 2020-21 school year with an informational meeting on Aug. 22 at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center in Manitowoc.
The event will last from 10 a.m. to noon, concluding with a lunch for all participants. The program will feature topics including the 2020-21 school year calendar, introduction to the Book of the Year and Essay Contest guidelines, grants, new resources, and discussion on needs for the upcoming school year.
“We hope Ag in the Classroom volunteers, Promotion and Education Committee members, teachers, home-school parents, 4-H leaders, and others involved with educating students will take advantage of this meeting,” says Darlene Arneson, Wisconsin Ag in the Classroom coordinator.
The registration fee for the event is $25 per person; this includes admission to the center and lunch. Others who wish to see the center but will not be participating in the program and lunch can receive a discounted admission of $5 per person. To receive this group discount, interested parties must register in advance, at the same time as an individual who is attending the program and lunch.
