National Agriculture in the Classroom is seeking workshop proposals for the 2023 NAITC Conference 'Beyond The Beaches’ scheduled for June 27-June 30 in Orlando, Florida.

 
Proposals must demonstrate how the workshop uses agricultural concepts to meet the National Agricultural Literacy Outcomes (NALOs) and teach reading, writing, math, nutrition, science, STEM, social studies and other subject areas. Proposals must reach elementary (grades Pre-K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), high school (9-12) or all grades.
 

Workshops style options are defined as full or mini.

    • Full workshops will last one hour.
    • Mini workshops will last 20 minutes and will be repeated 3 times with a 10-minute break in between.

 

Because the conference will be held in the Southeast, please consider workshops covering the following topics:
    • Animal Science
    • Plant Science
    • School Gardening
    • Renewable energy (ethanol, biodiesel, biogas, wind, solar)
    • Conservation/Environmental Science (water quality, soil health, pollinators)
    • Biotechnology (GMOs, cross-breeding, pesticides, nutrition quality, plant nutrients)
    • Aquaculture

 

In order to complete the workshop submission process, you will need:
 
A brief presenter/co-presenter(s) biography (50 words or less) describing their background and experience teaching in the agricultural literacy field.
 
A presenter/co-presenter(s) headshot.

A workshop description (200 words or less) which will be used on the website, conference registration and conference schedule. We encourage you to choose a descriptive, catchy title.
 

*Please be aware once proposals have been completed and submitted an editing feature is not accessible. If changes need to be made, please email programs@naitco.org. If a proposal has not yet been completed and is in the “incomplete” status a self-editing feature is accessible.

 
**A profile needs to be created to submit a workshop proposal. If you submitted a workshop for the 2022 National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference, you will need to create a new profile and login to submit for the 2023 conference. 

 

The deadline for submissions is October 7, 2022. Presenters will be notified mid-January of the status of their submission. For more information about the conference, please visit our website.
