As the 2013 school year gets under way, Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples reminds teachers, school administrators, and community leaders across Texas to nominate promising students for the Texas Department of Agriculture’s (TDA) GROW Award. The award Gives Recognition for Outstanding Work to middle and high school student leaders who demonstrate excellence in their pursuits inside and outside the classroom.

The GROW Award celebrates outstanding student leaders who demonstrate excellence in their academic or extracurricular activities. The award highlights a student’s special interests, service to community and family, strong work ethic, leadership, and overall character. Award recipients will receive an official certificate from Staples and special recognition on the TDA website. Students can be nominated by community leaders such as teachers, coaches, school administrators, mayors, county judges, or anyone else committed to recognizing youth leadership and achievement. A committee will choose a winner each month during the regular school year.

“Many people may not realize there are more than 200 different agriculture-related careers out there for our young people to explore,” Staples said. “Agriculture today is technically advanced, diverse, efficient, and innovative. It takes a close partnership with education to grow the knowledge and skills necessary to produce the clothes we wear, the homes we live in, the food we eat, the medicines that heal us, and the energy that powers our lives.”

To nominate a promising middle or high school student in your area, visit http://bit.ly/15qA2tA. Applications are due Tuesday, Oct. 1. The first GROW award recipient of the 2013 school year will be announced on Oct. 15.

Staples began recognizing Texas students with the GROW Award during the 2012 school year.
