Starbuck, Minn. BBE Elementary’s First Grade Class was awarded a $125 Elementary and Secondary Grant from CHS Prairie Lakes, as a part of the Prairie Lakes Grant Program.

CHS Prairie Lakes selected Kristine Bents, a first grade teacher, to receive a $125 grant to purchase agricultural children’s books for her classroom. Mrs. Bents purchased the books to help encourage the little farmers to love reading as much as they love to help their parents on the farm outside of school.

Applying schools and local community organizations are asked to state their plans for the grant money, supply general information about the project and purpose of the request, along with specific financial needs and projected outcomes. Applications for grant funding are available online at

Providing products and services in the agronomy, energy, and grain markets with locations in the communities of Elrosa, Glenwood, Hoffman, Long Prairie, Lowry, Park Rapids, and Starbuck, CHS Prairie Lakes is here to supply for your needs.
