Boyden-Hull Community Schools Receives $25,000 Grant From Monsanto Fund
Date posted - September 20, 2013
Hull, IA — Fans who attend tonight’s Boyden-Hull/Rock Valley Nighthawks versus Unity Christian Knights game tonight at Hesla Field in Hull will not only see a high school gridiron contest, but before the kickoff, they’ll also witness the Boyden-Hull school district receive a major grant from America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education.
America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education is sponsored by the Monsanto Fund, and offers farmers the chance to nominate a local public school district, which can then compete for a grant of up to $25,000 to enhance math and/or science education.
Boyden-Hull Community Schools faculty, local farmers and Monsanto representatives will participate in a check presentation ceremony before kickoff at tonight’s football game. The check presented will be for the maximum grant amount possible under the program, $25,000.
America’s Farmers Grow Communities, which offers winning farmers the chance to direct a $2,500 donation to a nonprofit organization in their county, is also part of this effort. To date, these programs combined have contributed more than $15 million to rural communities. To learn more about either program, please visit http://americasfarmers.com/.
