Bismarck, N.D., - Four North Dakota educators have been selected through various scholarships to attend the National Ag in the Classroom Conference, to be held in Des Moines, Iowa from June 28-July 1. The conference helps educators from across the nation learn how to incorporate real-life agricultural applications into science, social studies, language arts, math and nutrition lessons.

The four educators selected and awarded grants to attend the conference are:

Debra Nelson, Bottineau, N.D. – awarded a grant through the American Farm Bureau Foundation, White-Reinhardt Fund for Education

Linda Hugelen, Standing Rock, N.D. – awarded a grant through the Native American Agriculture Fund

Jenifer Hosman, Hebron, N.D. and Alaetra Alvarez, Ray, N.D. – selected to attend through grant support from the North Dakota Ag in the Classroom Program and the North Dakota Farm Bureau Foundation.

“The National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference is an experience like none other,” said NDFB’s Food, Land & People Program Coordinator Jill Vigesaa. “The agenda is always filled with engaging sessions and tours of local agricultural activity. It is very exciting to have four North Dakota teachers selected to share in the experience. Congratulations to these teachers!”
