Colton, Oakesdale receive $25,000 for ag programs

 

August 22, 2019



The Oakesdale and Colton school districts have both been awarded $25,000 grants from a Monsanto-Bayer ag education program, announced earlier in August.

Oakesdale applied for the grant specifically to add another greenhouse, for use by Jessica Moore's FFA/ag classes. The 30x40-foot structure, to go up on the old tennis courts, will be at least triple the size of the existing greenhouse.

Colton will use the $25,000 for three purchases – a classroom set of laptops more capable than the school-issued Chromebooks, four VEX Robotics kits and a $10,000 3D printer.
