America's Farmers Grow Rural Education, a program introduced by Monsanto, helps farmers positively impact their communities and support local school districts. America's Farmers Grow Rural Education offers farmers the opportunity to nominate rural public school districts to compete for a grant of up to $25,000. Nominated school districts then have until April 30 to submit an application. Winners will be announced in August 2013.
Farmers in 1,271 counties across 39 states have the opportunity to grow the next generation by nominating a rural, public school district to apply for a grant of up to $25,000. Grants will be awarded based on merit, need and community support. The more farmers to nominate your school district, the more it demonstrates community support and strengthens the district's application.
