MAC DAIRY GRANTS
Massachusetts Agriculture in the Classroom encourages educators to include lessons/experiences about dairy as an important part of agriculture in our state. This Dairy Grant, offered by MAC in partnership with the Massachusetts Dairy Promotion Board, is an effort to help educators in this process. Each grant is worth $250.
Grant monies may be used for dairy related field trips, materials for dairy lessons, classroom literature about dairy, etc.
A lesson reflecting either dairy nutrition or dairy economics must be submitted to MAC before July 1. All lessons must include any related worksheets and be correlated with the Massachusetts Curriculum Standards for the grade level. Permission is given to publish this lesson on the MAC website.
A brief final report is due to MAC on June 1. This should include a summary of the success of the project, the number of students reached by this project and A spreadsheet of the expenditure of the grant monies.
