Oklahoma Farm Bureau members are invited to share agriculture with students in their communities by participating in “Read an Accurate Ag Book Day” on Sept. 6, 2019.
Oklahoma Ag in the Classroom invites agriculture leaders across the state to join in the celebration and help ensure young students across the state understand the importance of agriculture in their daily lives.
On Sept. 6, classrooms, school libraries, 4-H clubs, and FFA chapters across Oklahoma will read accurate agriculture books to spread the message of agriculture. All participants who register will have a chance to win a bundle of accurate agriculture books for the school.
The AITC program will provide agriculture leaders with a book to read to students that day. After reading the book, please donate it to the school library.
