The Golden Radish Award is given to Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) in Georgia who are doing extraordinary work in farm to school. The Award is presented by the Georgia Department of Education, Georgia Department of Agriculture, Georgia Department of Public Health, and Georgia Organics. Winning LEAs will be recognized by the leaders of these four groups at the State Capitol on October 24, 2016.
LEAs will be recognized at four levels. Gold, Silver, and Bronze Radishes are awarded to recognize LEAs with varying levels of farm to school programs. Honorary Radishes are awarded to programs that are just getting started and satisfy at least 1 criterion within the Bronze level or higher. An additional award, the Outstanding Award, will be given to the district/LEA with the outstanding farm to school program in the 2015-2016 school year.
