Each year, Maine Agriculture in the Classroom recognizes an outstanding Maine elementary or secondary school teacher who uses agricultural education materials and/or activities in the classroom to teach core subjects.
The winning teacher is then required to submit an application for a National AITCA Excellence in Teaching About Agriculture Award and attends the National AITC Conference which will be held in Kansas City, Missouri next June. The MAITC Teacher of the Year also attends the annual Summer Teacher’s Institute free of charge and shares their program with others.
To apply or to nominate a teacher complete the application and return to MAITC via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at MAITC, 28 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333 by Oct. 7. To learn more visit www.agclassroom.org.
