The National Teach Ag Campaign is an initiative to bring attention to the career of agricultural education, get students thinking about a possible career in agricultural education, and support current agriculture teachers in their careers.
The National Teach Ag Campaign Internship is a component of the National Teach Ag Campaign funded through the CHS Foundation, DuPont Pioneer and Growth Energy as a special project of the National FFA Foundation. The National Teach Ag Campaign and NAAE will be coordinating the hiring of one intern for this position. The intern position will start in May 2017 and the end date will depend on performance but may last until April 2018. The intern will be stationed out of the NAAE office located on the campus of the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY during the summer. The remainder of the internship will be done remotely at a site mutually agreed upon by the intern and the NTAC.
Each year, the National Teach Ag Campaign selects 12 outstanding preservice agriculture teachers to represent us at the National FFA Convention, and throughout the year as ambassadors, promoting the profession and encouraging others to Teach Ag!
On Thursday, September 22nd, during the National Teach Ag Day live webcast, the CHS Foundation, funded by charitable contributions from CHS Inc., announced an additional $280,000 commitment to the State Teach Ag Results (STAR) program through the National FFA Foundation.
