Hebron school named grant finalist

Hebron Public School has been named a finalist in the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education. They are now among 18 other school districts in North Dakota that are eligible for a grant of up to $25,000.

Nominated school districts from across the country submitted completed grant applications. For the past month, a panel of educators reviewed applications and sent the strongest submissions for consideration by the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education Advisory Council. The Advisory Council, comprised of farmer-leaders with a vested interest in both agriculture and education, will select the winning grant applications from this pool of finalists.

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education helps farmers strengthen math and science education in local rural school districts. Currently in its second year, this program is part of the Monsanto Fund’s overall effort to support rural education and communities.
