Overton Public Schools is in need of nominations for the Monsanto Grow Rural Education Grant.  We are seeking funding to start the construction of a greenhouse. The goal is to construct a greenhouse that will enable various classes from Preschool-12th grade to get hands on experience with agriculture, science, mathematics, culinary and so much more!  

In order to be eligible for this grant our school must be nominated by as many local farmers within our school district as possible.  An Eligible Farmer must: 1) be 21 years of age or older at time of nomination, and 2) be actively engaged in farming. A farmer is “actively engaged in farming” if he or she performs the work on the farm, or hires and actively manages others who do so.

To nominate Overton Public Schools:

  • Eligible Farmers may enter the Program online by visiting www.GrowRuralEducation.com and submitting a nomination by April 2nd, 2018.

 

If you have questions contact Seth Ehlers- seth.ehlers@overtoneagles.org. Thank you for helping our school to continue growing educational opportunities for students.
