AWARDS GIVEN ANNUALLY
The Kids In Need Foundation, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and underfunded teachers, has announced the second year of a teacher grants program sponsored by Elmer's Products.
K-12 teachers across the United States are eligible to apply for one of approximately two hundred and fifty Elmer's Teacher Tool Kit grants. Grants will range from $100 to $500 for projects to be completed during the 2012-13 school year.
Grants will be awarded to teachers who wish to conduct classroom projects selected from a catalog of more than five hundred projects currently in theKids In Need Guide to Award Winning Projects. Grant awards will be based on financial need, description of how the particular project meets the educational needs of students and satisfies state standards or school curriculum requirements, and the number of students who will benefit from the project.
Please note: Although special consideration will be given to first-year teachers, all certified K-12 teachers are encouraged to apply.
As part of the Elmer's-Kids In Need partnership, Elmer's also will donate product to the foundation's Kids In Need National Network of Resource Centers, twenty-seven facilities across the United States where teachers from low-income schools can obtain free school supplies for their students and classrooms.
Applications will be accepted beginning February 14, 2012, at the Kids In Need Foundation Web site. Visit the Web site for program guidelines and access to the Kids In Need Guide to Award Winning Projects.
