Parents as Teachers is St. Louis grown!

Vote for Parents as Teachers

Corn, soybean, cotton, wheat, canola, sorghum and sugar cane seeds. Combating insects, controlling weeds, or increasing productivity.

Does this sound like Parents as Teachers? It does until October 16th! That’s the deadline for online voting in the GROW ST. LOUIS contest sponsored by Monsanto. Monsanto is awarding $15,000, $10,000 and $5,000 to the three projects receiving the most votes.

We HEAR St. Louis!
The most reliable way to conduct hearing screenings with infants and toddlers is with an otoacoustic emissions instrument. However, the instrument is expensive and Parents as Teachers programs struggle to find funding to purchase the machine and train staff to use it. Grow St. Louis award funds would allow the Parents as Teachers national office to purchase three otoacoustic emissions instruments to loan to local programs at no cost.
