Agricultural education is continually faced with a shortage of qualified teachers. Unless those who have been trained enter and remain in the profession for a period of several years, the shortage of qualified teachers will prevail. As a means of encouraging young teachers to remain in the profession and to encourage and recognize participation in professional activities, the NAAE “Teachers Turn the Key” scholarship program is being sponsored by Dodge Division and DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
NAAE members who have completed at least two but not more than four years of teaching are eligible to apply for this award; members who are currently in their fifth year of teaching are eligible to apply.
