K-12 Classroom Grant Opportunity

You may know the Kids in Need Grant Program. It is a classroom grant program that awards $100-$500 to teachers with innovative lessons. They want to see students learning, and they want to see a new twist on lesson plans. If you click on Teacher Grants then Project Ideas, I think most of you will find that your Summer Institute demo might make for a great project they would consider. So, think of supplies you could use with your students and write up a grant. It will probably take you a planning period to do. Have fun...and good luck. :) And let us know if you were a recipient.

The deadline is September 30.
