NCR-SARE Announces 2014 Youth Educator Sustainable Agriculture Grants Call for Proposals

The 2014 North Central Region - Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (NCR-
SARE) Youth Educator Grant Call for Proposals is now available.

Youth Educator Grant projects provide opportunities for youth in the North Central Region to learn
more about sustainable agriculture (farming and ranching that is ecologically sound, profitable, and
socially responsible).  Educators use the grants to encourage young people and their parents to try
sustainable practices and see sustainable agriculture as a viable career option. Projects should help
youth discover that sustainable farming and ranching is profitable; good for families, communities,
and their quality of life; and good for the environment long term. The maximum amount for grants is
$2,000, and a total of approximately $20,000 is available for this program.

New this year, NCR-SARE will be accepting online submissions for the Youth Educator Grant Program.
More information about the online submission system can be found in the call for proposals.

Interested applicants can find the call for proposals online as well as useful information for
completing a proposal at http://www.northcentralsare.org/Grants/Our-Grant-Programs/Youth-
Educator-Grant-Program.  You can find more information about sustainable agriculture at
http://www.sare.org/ or take a free National Continuing Education Program online course about the
basic concepts at http://www.sare.org/Learning-Center/Courses-and-Curricula  . Note that NCR-
SAREs Youth Grant Program was discontinued in March 2012.

Proposals are due by Friday, November 1, 2013 at 4pm on CDT.
