News : Five area schools seek Monsanto "Rural Education Grants"
Posted by Tom on 2012/7/28 8:18:30 (531 reads) News by the same author

Five area school districts are among 29 finalists from across Missouri being considered for a rural education grant from Monsanto. The grants are $10,000 and $25,000. School districts under consideration include Pleasant View R-6, Princeton, Polo, Southwest Livingston (Ludlow), and Cameron.

The process for the America's Farmers Grow Rural Education grant began with nominations from farmers. Finalists were chosen for the program ideas and funding needs. There is an online application scoring system based on merit, need, and community support; a review by science and math teachers from school districts not eligible for a grant; and a "farmer advisory" council.

Monsanto says an advisory committee of 26 farmer leaders from across the U.S. will select the winning grant applications. Monsanto plans to ward nearly $2,300,000 to school districts across 39 states.
