Purpose of the Award
The Educator of the Year award is designed to recognize an educator's efforts to incorporate agriculture and natural resources into the school curriculum both in K-12 classrooms or in Agriscience Career and Technical Education programs.
County Farm Bureaus should consider nominating a teacher who has done an outstanding job integrating basic agricultural concepts into their lessons while meeting school curriculum objectives, as well as a teacher who has developed their students' problem-solving skills through the analysis of agricultural issues and information using creative teaching techniques or methods.
Nominations must be completed online by Feb. 15.
The state winner will receive recognition at the Michigan Farm Bureau Annual Meeting, a cash prize to continue their agricultural education activities as well as a scholarship to attend the National Ag in the Classroom conference.
