WLC, Foundation partner to donate accurate ag books to teachers

August 28, 2018  • OKFB Leadership Team

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau Women’s Leadership Committee and OKFB’s Oklahoma Farming and Ranching Foundation have partnered to sponsor the 2018 Bushels for Books program, which awards teachers and school librarians bushel baskets of accurate agriculture books to be used in their classrooms and libraries across the state.

Selected by the OKFB WLC, the books will cover various agriculture topics based on the grade levels receiving the books. Most books are elementary age appropriate.

Applications are now available online, and must be submitted no later than Sept. 14 to marcia.irvin@okfb.org or mail to Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Attn: Marcia Irvin, 2501 N. Stiles Ave., Oklahoma City, OK 73105.

Only one application may be submitted per school. To be eligible for consideration, a teacher can submit an application for a specific grade level or a school librarian can submit an application for books that range multiple grade levels.

The books will be presented to educators during the 2018 OKFB Annual Meeting on Saturday, Nov. 17 in Norman, Oklahoma. Selected educators must attend the annual meeting to receive the books.

For more information, contact Marcia Irvin by calling the OKFB home office at 405-523-2300.
