Dairy Makes Sense $500 Grant

Who can resist a cute cow? Well, that and a chance to win a $500 grant for your project might just entice you to look at some resources that have been made available by the Midwest Dairy Council.

They have developed a curriculum which includes downloadable “Make Change” lesson plans, appropriate for any lessons focusing on health, family and consumer science, or general classroom discussion. The lesson plans and accompanying tools are located inside the “Educator’s Resource Center” at Dairy Makes Sense.

Here, you’ll find posters, a PowerPoint presentation, lesson plans and interactive “cow-culator” activity, hand-outs, charts, recipes, and nutrition guides, all available free of charge.

Educators can also apply for a $500 school grant from Midwest Dairy Council to help empower students to take action for their health and improve their school environment. Fifteen $500 grants will be distributed. The grants are only available to schools in the Midwest Dairy region, which includes Missouri (as well as IA, ND, SD, MN, IL, AR, KS, and eastern OK).

Projects that might be able to utilize these resources would fit well into national programs such as Student Body and Financial Fitness. Using these resources, FCCLA members might be able to develop a project for STAR Events such as Focus on Children or Illustrated Talk.

It's enough to make you moo. (Sorry, I just couldn't resist....)
