May 12 marked Newton-Conover’s Second Annual Inno Awards. Over $30,000 in Innovative Grant awards was doled out this year to deserving N-C educators and students. The goal of the grants is to provide teachers and students an opportunity to try new things in new ways. Grants are reviewed, and the most innovative and promising are funding up to $1500. Grantees must complete a mid-year review, keep to a strict budget, and then complete both a reflection and a 3-minute video that demonstrates the impact of their grant.
This year’s winners were:
Enhancing Discovery’s Creativity Room – Jody Dixon & Keith Wilson (Discovery High School)
Sustainable Farming to Provide Biology Activities – Gene Scronce (Discovery High School)
Little REDs Showcase – Jessica Schouweiler & Brian Smith (Newton-Conover Middle School)
