Each year, MAITC recognizes an outstanding Maine elementary or secondary school teacher who uses agricultural education materials and/or activities in the classroom to teach core subjects. The winning teacher will attend the National AITC Conference which will be held in Des Moines, Iowa on June 28 – July 1, 2021.
