Virginia Agriculture in the Classroom is accepting applications to the annual AITC program. This program provides educators an opportunity to receive grant funding for a variety of creative projects to increase student understanding of the source of food and fiber inside or outside the traditional classroom.

Educators are encouraged to apply for grants for projects that may occur at school or during home learning time. Grant projects may address topics such as learning gardens and/or STEM integrations, or provide unique agriculture experiences for students.

Examples of previous projects:
  • Preschool students in Hopewell learned about a chicken's life cycle with an egg hatching unit
  • PK-2 students in Henrico grew their own plants, participated in a mini-market and capped off the unit with a visit from the Farm Bus
  • Elementary students in Franklin attended an Ag Day that increased their knowledge of where their food comes from
  • Preschool students in Arlington used a Grow Lab to jump start their own school garden
  • Middle school FFA members in Mecklenburg celebrated National Ag Day by teaching elementary students in their county about agriculture

  • Elementary students in Buckingham participated in a "Sheep to Socks" project and learned about wool and other animal products
