Two Oklahoma teachers recently were selected to receive the Christina Lilja Resource Grant from the American Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture.
LaDonna Forester of Colbert Public Schools and Kynda James of Elk City Public Schools, along with 49 other educators from across the country, were chosen to receive the $100 grants to purchase agriculture literacy resources for their students.
With more than 600 educators applying this year, the purpose of the grant is to allow teachers the ability to purchase accurate agricultural materials to help students learn about the importance of agriculture.
Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers are eligible to apply for the annual grant program.
