Spotlight: NAESP/Crayola Champion Creatively Alive Children Grant Program

The National Association of Elementary School Principals has partnered with Crayola for this year's Champion Creatively Alive Children grant program, which will award prizes to every applicant who meets the early bird deadline, plus cash and product prizes totaling $3,500 to up to 20 applicants.

The grant program is designed "for innovative, creative leadership team building within elementary/middle schools" with an aim toward enriching "the creative capabilities and confidence within the school community."

Up to 20 cash and product prizes will be awarded to teams whose proposals best "identify and deliver innovative programs that inspire educators to increase art-infused education." The prizes include $2,500 in cash to fund professional development plus a large assortment of Crayola products valued at $1,000 to $1,500 (pictured below).
