The National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference brings together teachers, volunteers, informal educators and industry experts from across the country to share ideas, network and celebrate agricultural literacy.
The conference moves to a different region every year and is only in the Midwest every four years. This will be the first time that it has been hosted in Iowa.
The Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation’s Ag in the Classroom program is designed to help K-12 students understand the importance of agriculture. The program is coordinated by the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, with funding from the Wisconsin Farm Bureau Foundation, other agricultural groups and a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.
