Conference Scholarships Available

New York Agriculture in the Classroom is proud to be the state host for the 2022 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in Saratoga Springs. It is an honor to welcome teachers from across the country to our beautiful state, showcasing the beauty and diversity of New York’s agriculture.

New York Agriculture in the Classroom wants to support your professional development 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. Teachers from across the country will gather to learn from skilled presenters, engaging keynote speakers, and from one another.

Our hope is to inspire and expose as many teachers as possible 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 28-July 1, 2022 in Saratoga Springs, NY. Learn more about the conference, preview tour experiences, and see what’s in store for this uniquely New York conference.
