National Ag in the Classroom

2022 National Ag In the Classroom

Saratoga Springs, NY

The National Agriculture in the Classroom Organization (NAITCO) partnered with the Native American Agriculture Fund (NAAF) to encourage teachers of Native American students to attend the 2022 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in Saratoga Springs, NY. The teachers at the conference had access to learning about multiple areas of agriculture including hydroponics, soil and land health, new agricultural technology, as well as specialized topics such as dairy production and climate change impacting agriculture producers.  

The teachers selected for this sponsorship were those who teach pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade students at a Tribal government-operated school, a Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) school, a BIE-supported school, a school on a reservation teaching Native American students, a non-reservation school that has a high percentage of Native American students, or a teacher with a Tribal affiliation.
