Through Thank America’s Teachers, Farmers will award five $100,000 grants to fund teachers’ educational visions for their classrooms and communities this year. Grant recipients will be chosen from 15 finalists who receive the most votes in October.

Over the past few years, over $1 million annually went to funding programs like an outdoor learning center, an accessible playground for special needs students, and a student mentorship program with local business leaders.
