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 is then required to submit—with our help—an application for a National AITC Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Award and attends the National AITC Conference which will be held in Des Moines, Iowa on June 28 – July 1, 2021. Maine's teacher of the Year also attends the annual Summer Teacher's Institute free of charge and shares their program with the teachers there. To apply or nominate a teacher please submit this application to MAITC by 5:00 on October 2, 2020, at maitc@maine.govor MAITC, 28 State House Station, Augusta, ME 04333.
