Monsanto Grant

Monsanto awards grants to schools in our area every year.  This grant is simply a "lottery drawing" of those farmers who complete a very short online form.  HOWEVER, later this year we will apply for a $25,000 grant which is based on merit; we were a finalist for this grant last year.  We hope to receive it this year, and we will again need our farmers' support in completing a second short, online form once we've completed that application in March.  The Monsanto web site has even more information. 


Grant Opportunity:

Americas Farmers Grow Communities sponsored by Monsanto:  If you are a farmer or farm family in Craighead County and meet the requirements shown below, please take time to follow the link to complete the short form.  If your name is “drawn” for Craighead County, please consider making a Westside School District program your chosen cause to support.  One random entry per county will receive a $2500 award.  Please share this with other farmers/wives who support the Westside School District..  DEADLINE:  November 30, 2014     Thank you.

Follow the link above and click enroll from the list on the right side of the screen.

Farmer Eligibility – Entrants must live or farm in an eligible county, be 21 years old or older and actively engaged in farming a minimum of 250 acres of corn, soybeans, and/or cotton; or 40 acres of open field vegetables (as defined above), or at least 10 acres of tomatoes, peppers, and/or cucumbers grown in protected culture (glasshouse, nethouse, plastic). Entrants are limited to one entry per qualified person (regardless of the form of entry). A farmer is "actively engaged in farming" if he or she performs the work, or hires and actively manages others who do so. 


Farmers:  We appreciate your going to this link to apply.  Thank you!!
