Classroom Cash road trip

What’s GrowNextGen doing on the road? Visiting 5 lucky teachers who each won $250 Classroom Cash! All of these teachers are at STEM schools and entered our contest last fall, made possible by our generous sponsor, the Ohio Soybean Council.

  • Lisa Bowman, Graham Middle School
  • Amber Johnson, Graham Elementary School
  • Meghan Prendergast, Global Impact STEM Academy
  • Rob Niedermeyer, STEM Middle at Baldwin Rd Junior High School
  • Sheila Woidtke, Ranger High-Tech Academy

Ohio Soybean Council Director of Research and Education Tom Fontana joined’s Education Director Jane Hunt and others for a trip to these schools. The teachers were presented with a check and balloons, and the students received fun squish-toy farm animals or vehicles representing the ways soybeans are transported across the country (trucks, trains, and boats).

Stay tuned for updates on how these teachers will use their prize money in their classrooms!
