HILLSBORO (November 5, 2012)--Hillsboro ISD will use a $25,000 grant received by the Monsanto fund to construct a greenhouse.

“Greenhouses provide students a hands-on, agricultural learning experience beyond typical classroom activities,” a spokesperson said.

The school district was selected as a winner in the America’s Farmers Grow Rural Education initiative which is merit based.

Hillsboro ISD was selected as one of nine winners.

The program gives farmers the opportunity to nominate their public school district to apply for a $10,000 or $25,000 grant.

More than $2.3 million will be invested in rural education across 39 states, a spokesperson for the grant said.
