New York Agriculture in the Classroom is looking forward to again supporting teachers to attend the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference.

New York Agriculture in the Classroom wants to support your professional learning at the premier conference about teaching through a lens of food and agriculture.

Teachers from across the state will be selected and supported by New York Agriculture in the Classroom for a full conference scholarship. The conference will bring together teachers from across the country to learn from skilled presenters, engaging keynote speakers, and from one another.

Our hope is to inspire and expose teachers to the many ways of including agriculture in our schools. We hope to support you in your food system education endeavors through this scholarship while building your network and community of teachers also using food and agriculture in their classrooms.

The National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference will be held June 23-26, 2025 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Learn more about the conference.
