Pensacola Interstate Fair Booth

UF/IFAS Santa Rosa County Extension Fair Booth 2012

‘Going to the Pensacola Interstate Fair? Stop by and check out our booth. We’re celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Morrill Act. The act deeded western territories for each state to sell in order to fund the creation of a land grant university. The universities, with a focus on agricultural sciences, engineering and military tactics, made education more accessible to the “common” man. The land grant universities in Florida are the University of Florida and Florida A&M University .
