Although the 2020 school year was completed virtually, the program still supported beef learning opportunities for over 6,500 Wisconsin students from 58 different schools.
In the upcoming school year, Beef in the Classroom grants will be awarded on a semester-by-semester basis. Fall grant applications will be due by October 1, 2020, and approved teachers must use the awarded grant dollars during the fall semester and submit receipts in late December. A second round of applications will re-open in early January, allowing for some flexibility in regards to the changing status of in-person versus virtual learning for different school districts.
