EDUCATION OF NEVADA YOUTHThe Nevada Agricultural Foundation has determined the importance of the education of Nevada Youth
The Nevada Agricultural Foundation has determined the importance of the education of Nevada youth about the role of agriculture in our global economy. To address this educational need, the Excellence in Education program was developed.
The Excellence in Education Award is a supplement to the programs of the Nevada Cattlemen’s Association (NCA), Nevada FFA Foundation (FFA), Nevada 4-H Program (4-H) and the Nevada Ag in the Classroom program (AITC); all of which recognize the teaching of excellent educators.
