Registration K-12


 Montanan Harvest of the Month K-12 schools, afterschool programs, and summer food service programs registration

  • The Montana Harvest of the Month program is open to K-12 schools and afterschool programs in Montana. Please coordinate with your Harvest of the Month team at your school, district, or afterschool program to avoid duplicate registrations. One packet will be provided for each participating school and afterschool program site. For example, a school district that is registering three schools and one afterschool program can receive four packets. Additional posters are available for purchase at Montana State University Extension's publication store. Materials will be mailed to the address in this registration form (please use a school or afterschool program address, not a personal address).

  • A team is crucial for a successful implementation of the Harvest of the Month program and creates valuable connections within the school, district, and community. If you have not approached all the required members of your Harvest of the Month team (administrator, food service, and teacher) you may still register. Please be in touch with your team members as soon as possible. Anyone listed as a team member with contact information will receive monthly email Harvest of the Month updates. This will help remind your team of available resources and updates.
  • You can register multiple schools or afterschool program sites at the same time with this form. You will list each of the participating schools or afterschool program sites. This registration form collects one set of team members. If you wish to have different team members listed for each site, please complete a separate registration form per site. These individual school/program teams might have overlapping team members such as food service staff or administrator.
  • Prior to registering, you can learn the basics of Montana Harvest of the Month program with the handouts, short videos, and trainings posted on the site.

Group Information

  • The person who will be the primary contact for the school, district, and/or afterschool program should be listed here.

Harvest of the Month Expectations

  • By registering, your team is pledging to all the expectations listed below. Please check all boxes. If your school struggles with any of these expectations our team is here to help! Remember, starting small and conducting quick activities such as reading the item's fun facts each month in a classroom is a great start!
  • Pilot sites estimated taste testing and an activity costs between $5-$15. Participating in the Harvest of the Month program is free of charge (for this year, subject to change in the future). However, schools and afterschool programs will purchase their own supplies and food for educational activities and meals or snacks.
