Newton-Conover is committed to providing teachers and students with opportunities to try innovative ideas to engage students in their content. Each year, money collected from facility rental is collected and used for Innovative Grants. This year, we had almost 40 applications. Criteria for these grants include – proposing a new activity, opportunity, or resource that has not been considered before; agreeing to provide feedback on what was learned throughout the process; completing a 2-3 minute video to demonstrate the outcome of the grant; and willingness to attend the Innovative Grant Showcase. At least one lucky grant winner may be granted an additional grant for the 2016-17 school year based on the quality and impact of his/her grant. Join us in congratulating all NCCS 2015-16 Innovative Grant winners. This spreadsheet contains all winners by schools, the names of their projects, and the amount they were funded.
If you are interested in seeing the results and outcomes of the grants, join us on May 12 at 4:00 pm in the Newton-Conover Middle School Auditorium for the Innovative Grants Community Showcase and Awards.
