Join the National Teach Ag Campaign
WHAT IS NATIONAL TEACH AG DAY?
The ninth annual National Teach Ag Day celebration will take place on Thursday, September 20, 2018. 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 will be hosted by Corteva Agriscience™ Agriculture Division of DowDuPont™ in Des Moines, Iowa.
National Teach Ag Day is a part of the National Teach Ag Campaign, an initiative of the National Council for Agricultural Education, led by the National Association of Agricultural Educators and sponsored by the CHS Foundation, Corteva Agriscience™ Agriculture Division of DowDuPont™, BASF, Herman & Bobbie Wilson, and Growth Energy, as a special project of the National FFA Foundation.
