American Royal awards $5,000 grants to five area schools

The American Royal has awarded $25,000 in grants to help students at five Kansas City area schools learn more about agriculture.

The 116-year-old Royal organization, which annually promotes the region’s agricultural roots, said the Neighborhood Schools Partnership aims to expose students “to a variety of educational and experimental programming designed to engage the students in the agriculture process.”

The schools receiving the $5,000 grants were Guadalupe Center School, Allen Village, Crossroads Academy Charter, Rosedale Elementary, and Gordon Parks Charter.
