About KyAEC

Programs We Support

The Kentucky Agriculture and Environment in the Classroom, Inc. is a non-profit coalition that combines the resources of our agricultural community to develop, promote, and integrate agricultural and environmental curriculum. Our programs, lessons, and resources are being used in the public and private school systems, on farms, by volunteer educators, and at special events. 

The goal of the KyAEC and its members is to teach more students the significance and impact agriculture has on their daily lives. Improved agricultural literacy develops the next generation of informed consumers. 

Agriculture Adventures

Agriculture Adventures is a mobile program that provides an assembly and hands-on activities about agriculture through science, social studies, nutrition, and vocational studies.

Kentucky Ag Poster & Essay Contest

KyAEC sponsors the annual Kentucky Agriculture Poster and Essay Contest. Entries are received through the end of January, and winners in each grade are honored in March.
