by Christi Gochenour

January 17, 2012

Logan-Magnolia Schools needs your help to secure funding for our new greenhouse!.


We need you to get out in your communities and ask your local farmers to nominate Logan-Magnolia Schools for the opportunity to compete for a $10,000 grant through Monsanto Fund’s America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education℠.


Grants will be awarded based on merit, need and community support. The more farmers to nominate our school district, the more it demonstrates community support and strengthens our application. Visit GrowRuralEducation.com (Grow Rural Education dot com) for more information, or call the Logan-Magnolia Jr./Sr. High School for more information.

The letter below is an informational letter to give you more information and to let active farmers know how to nominate the school.

We know nothing is more important than the next generation, and Logan-Magnolia School District is always looking for new opportunities to go above and beyond for your children. In order to continue to give our students the best education, Logan-Magnolia School District is asking for your help. We are asking all parents and school staff to ask local farmers to nominate the Logan-Magnolia School District for the opportunity to compete for a $10,000 grant through America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education℠.

America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, gives eligible farmers the opportunity to grow the next generation by nominating a rural public school district in their community to compete for a grant to enhance education in the areas of science and/or math. The Monsanto Fund will award 199 grants this year across the United States. More than $2.3 million will be donated to rural school districts across 39 states, and at least nine $10,000 grants will be awarded in Iowa.

This is where we need your help. Logan-Magnolia School District would like to apply for the $10,000 grant, and we plan to use the money for our new greenhouse and supporting curriculum. Our school district could be one of the winners, but we need your help by nominating our school.

Grants will be awarded based on merit, need and community support. The more farmers to nominate our school district, the more it demonstrates
community support and strengthens our application. Tell your family, friends and neighbors to spread the word. Promotional materials, such as flyers and newsletters, are available for your use at GrowRuralEducation.com

Visit GrowRuralEducation.com for more information. If you are an eligible farmer and would like to nominate Logan-Magnolia School District today, you can do so at GrowRuralEducation.com or by calling 1-877-267-3332.
