Grant for Teaching Conservation to 3rd-5th Graders
The Nongame Conservation Section of Georgia DNR's Wildlife Resources Division offers a $1,000 grant to a third-, fourth- or fifth-grade teacher who demonstrates exceptional energy and innovation in teaching life sciences. Project proposals must include Georgia's nongame wildlife (animals not fished for or hunted and rare plants not harvested) as the context for learning curriculum standards. One teacher is selected based on project design and how well the grant proposal questions are answered.
Guidelines for the 2014 grant are available for review as a Word document and pdf. (Read the news release about the 2014 recipient, William Eswine of Savannah Country Day School.)
2013 grant recipient Steven King, of Whit Davis Elementary in Athens, with Ron Lee of TERN.
