By the Numbers
During the 2018-2019 school year, Oregon Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation reached 239,747 students in every county in Oregon with agricultural education.
Students are reached through various programs and resources that Oregon AITC offers including the Lending Library, the annual Agricultural Literacy Project, the Calendar Art Contest, and more!
We get to work every day with the most amazing and dedicated groups of teachers and non traditional educators from all around the state! We work hard to make sure that we can provide quality, relevant, and useful resources for whatever your classroom needs are when it comes to teaching agriculture! During the 2018-2019 school year, we trained a total 270 educators and would love to hear from you if you have yet to attend one of our regional workshops!
We would not be able to reach the students that we do every year without the dedication of the amazing volunteers who believe in our mission of “helping students grow in their knowledge of agriculture”.
The 2019 Agricultural Literacy Project was made possible by the help of 766 volunteers who gave their time to visit local classrooms and teach about John Deere and agricultural engineering and innovations!
