My Virginia Plate will be 2015 Virginia AITC book of year
Maxey is senior education program coordinator for Virginia AITC. My Virginia Plate will be read and distributed in schools statewide by volunteers during Virginia’s fifth annual Agriculture Literacy Week, March 15-21, 2015.
“Last year volunteers read to more than 50,000 children in 2,300 classrooms across the state,” Maxey said. “We’re hoping to get even more people to volunteer to read this year and to share the story of agriculture in their communities.”
Volunteers have included Virginia Farm Bureau Federation Women’s Program and Young Farmers Program participants, ffa members, employees of the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and other state agencies, and members of other agricultural organizations and businesses. Farm Credit of the Virginias and Southern States have been major supporters.
