Language Arts Grant Funds Essay Contest

on May 14, 2012

ImageEach year we award $12,500 in Language Arts grants to the top 10% of schools who have entries accepted for publication in “A Celebration of Poets” and “Celebrating What Is Important to Me”.  This award is given to help these schools fund programs and activities that they would not have the ability to without the grant.   You can read some examples of how this grant has been used to help schools here

One such recipient of this grant is Coffee County Central High School in Tennessee.  Joyce McCullough, a Language Arts teacher there, shared the wonderful experience her and her students were able to have because of this grant.
