National Teach Ag Day - Engagement Opportunities for Everyone!


The ninth annual National Teach Ag Day celebration will take place on Thursday, September 19, 2019. National Teach Ag Day is designed to encourage others to teach school based agriculture and recognize the important role that agriculture teachers play in our schools and communities.

Every year the National Teach Ag Campaign hosts a live webcast event somewhere in the country in conjunction with National Teach Ag Day. This year's live webcast was hosted by BASF in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
