We’re celebrating the one millionth dollar earned by innovative educators from our Classroom Minigrant Program – and we need your help!
In honor of this milestone, and how teachers have used the minigrants to develop unique classroom projects that help students creatively learn about the world around them, we’re offering school districts and education foundations where our distribution terminals are located the opportunity to win a special grant that will include the official millionth classroom minigrant dollar donated.
Your votes will determine which school district or education foundation will win the $5,000. And four runner-ups will receive $1,250 each.
Thank you! We received more than 150,000 votes helping us celebrate our millionth Classroom Minigrant Program dollar contributed to local educators.
Congratulations to the River Bend Community Unit School District #2, home of our Albany, IL, terminal for winning our special $5,000 grant.
We are also pleased to award grants of $1,250 to Cowden-Herrick Community Unit School District, Fremont Public Schools, Garner-Hayfield-Ventura Community School District, and Illini Bluffs Community Unit School District #327.

About the Classroom Minigrant Program
CF’s Classroom Minigrant Program offers local educators funding for programs that incorporate agriculture or the environment into their classrooms, with priority placed on projects that focus on water quality education. As the grants average around $300 each, reaching one million dollars contributed to education through minigrants means that more than 3,300 classroom projects have received funding over the nearly 20 years of the program.
