Thirteen public and private schools recently received $22,266.85 in grants from Great Lakes Energy for classroom projects. The grants brought to life innovative technology projects that limited school budgets could not finance.
A total of 64 applications arrived from 33 school districts that serve students who are children of GLE members. Grant requests totaled $107,136.
2016 marked the fifth year GLE awarded the classroom grants, made possible through GLE’s affiliation with Touchstone Energy, a national alliance of member-owned electric cooperatives. Touchstone Energy programs are designed to enhance quality of life in local communities served by electric cooperatives.
See the list of schools that received grants for the 2016-2017 school year and find more information on the Classroom Grant program here.
Applications will open for the 2017-2018 school year in September 2017.
