Treat teachers with a surprise box of supplies to celebrate National Agriculture Week! Request a box to give to a 2nd Grade teacher in your community to encourage hands-on, fun, and educational learning about Nebraska’s number 1 industry. This box comes complete with educational curriculum, resources, and supplies for teachers to lead activities on their own in the classroom. There are 100 boxes available on a first come, first serve basis. The total amount of boxes one county can request at this time is five. Staff will evaluate the number of boxes available and may release more at a later date.
