George, Iowa — George-Little Rock School has received a $10,000 grant from Monsanto.

George/Little Rock has been selected as a winner in America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education, which gives farmers the opportunity to nominate their public school district to apply for a $10,000 or $25,000 merit-based grant to enhance math and science education. The grants are available through the Monsanto Fund. After a three tier grant review process, GLR was selected as one of a dozen winners in Iowa.
