STEM Funds Giveaway
Entries are now being accepted for the 2022 Possibility Grant Sweepstakes, which awards five U.S. K–12 schools each a $5,000 STEM grant to purchase supplies and technology for any STEM-related initiative. Open through 5 p.m. EDT April 22, 2022, educators and educational professionals are encouraged to enter daily on the Siemens STEM Day website for a chance to win.
At the end of April, two random drawings will be held; the first random drawing, from entries for schools qualified for the Title 1 Schoolwide Program or Title 1 Targeted Assistance Program, will select three winners and the second drawing from all entries regardless of Title 1 status will select two winners, according to the sweepstakes rules.
Presented by the STEM education advocates at Siemens Foundation and Discovery Education, the Possibility Grant Sweepstakes supports high-quality STEM instruction to foster equity and access to quality education.
