Ag Literacy Ambassadors

Help us promote our agricultural literacy programs and resources in your school building! Our goal is to have at least one Ag Literacy Ambassador in each elementary, middle school, and high school building in the county.

What Ambassadors do:

As an Ambassador, you are the main link between our ag literacy program and the teachers in your building. Ambassadors are asked to:

  • Attend the fall Ambassador workshop to refresh your knowledge of programs and resources available.
  • Distribute the Illinois Ag in the Classroom calendars and ag literacy brochures in your building.
  • Speak briefly at a staff meeting about our resources and programs. Let others know you’re available to answer or refer questions to us regarding farm & food-related resources.
  • Share with fellow staff the ag literacy information we email to you.
  • Share/promote

Ambassador perks:

  • Be the first to hear about new opportunities and resources.
  • Attend a special workshop to explore new lessons and activities.
  • Receive free classroom goodies!
