Teacher of the Year

The 2021 Teacher of the Year application is now open


The purpose of the award is to recognize a Georgia educator for his/her excellent job in incorporating agriculture into the Georgia standards for teaching. Agriculture is an important part of life for all. Clothing, food, fuel, housing, medicine, and more are rooted in agriculture. Agricultural concepts can support the teaching of many academic disciplines as well as programs such as STEM, STEAM, and STREAM.


This year the application and complete instructions are online and can be found here.


The deadline for submitting applications is July 16, 2021. The winner will win a trip to the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in Saratoga Springs, New York, June 2022.

(Note: High school/middle school/elementary school agriculture educators, are not eligible for this award.)
