National #TeachAg Day

Celebrate the profession of teaching agriculture with us on September 19, 2024! We’re re-imagining our National #TeachAg Day celebration to make it even more fun for you to promote the profession of agricultural education.


#TeachAg Goes to the Movies

This year’s #TeachAg Day will focus on the premiere of our very first short documentary! This film will follow the journey of pre-service agricultural education students as they complete their student teaching experiences and figure out what comes next.

Give your students an exclusive peek behind the curtain into what their experience will be like if they decide to choose agricultural education as their major. Anyone who is considering a career in agricultural education should watch this film.

The documentary premieres on YouTube on National #TeachAg Day at 1:30 p.m. eastern.

Would you like to partner with us to promote the upcoming #TeachAg Day Documentary? Join us in letting the world know….it starts in the classroom. Official NAAE #TeachAg Documentary Promotion Partners will be the first to know about the upcoming documentary with regular production updates, receive exclusive behind the scenes footage, swag and special recognition.

Plan a Documentary Premiere Party

Roll out the red carpet in your community! We are offering support for anyone who would like to host a premiere party in their own town. Whether it’s your local theater, a community center, or the high school auditorium, you can hold your own screening of our documentary and invite future ag teachers, community stakeholders and others!

Watch for the release of our planning guide this summer to assist in hosting your own premiere party!
