MZES's Camp is Ga. Farm Bureau TOTY

Sep 11 2023

Congratulations to Mount Zion Elementary School STEM teacher Samantha Camp for being named 2023 Georgia Farm Bureau Ag in the Classroom Teacher of the Year! The award recognizes a Georgia educator for his/her excellent job of incorporating agriculture into the Georgia standards for teaching. Clothing, food, fuel, housing, medicine, and more are rooted in agriculture, and agricultural concepts can support the teaching of many academic disciplines as well as programs such as STEM, STEAM, and STREAM. Mrs. Camp will accept her award in December at the Georgia Farm Bureau Annual Meeting on Jekyll Island. Mrs. Camp will also attend the National Agriculture in the Classroom Conference in June in Salt Lake City. Mrs. Camp also receives a $500 cash prize.
The purpose of the Georgia Agriculture in the Classroom program is to increase agricultural literacy among children and the general public. It provides tools for more effective teaching about agriculture and its role in an interdependent society, and to assist Georgia’s educators in implementing the instruction of agriculture-related concepts in the classroom. This mission is achieved through the activities of county Farm Bureau volunteers in their local communities and through teacher training courses held throughout the state. For more information, visit
