From Farm to Football Harvest for All Penny Drive
Classrooms that participate in “From Farm to Football” also have the opportunity to compete in the Harvest for All Penny Drive. Be sure to let Ag in the Classroom (AITC) know if you will be competing in the penny drive. Here is how it works.
- Have your students collect pennies October – December 16th.
- Pennies will be picked up from your school the week of December 19th to be counted.
- Pennies will be tabulated by grade level at each school.
- The grade level that collects the most pennies will receive a Cardinals Event in February (there will be only 1 winner in the state) that includes Hickman’s Family Farms, the Arizona Cardinals, Ag in the Classroom and more.
- Pennies will be donated to your local food bank once all pennies have been collected and tabulated.
Sign your classroom up by September 19th to be entered in a drawing to win 1 of 3 footballs autographed by David Johnson. Classes must register for this FREE program by October 1st to assure they receive all program materials. Click below to sign-up for “From Farm to Football”
