WeAreTeachers, the online social and business network that brings together teachers, learners and content in the education industry, has announced the launch of its newest microgrant opportunity, sponsored by Follett Software Company.
Educators are asked to answer the question "What would $200 help you do with your school's library?" Answers can be submitted by visiting www.WeAreTeachers.com. The deadline to apply is Monday, Oct. 11.
All of the submissions will be placed in an online gallery for open voting, which will end Oct. 26. The 10 ideas that garner the most votes will win a $200 grant, as well as a Flip Video camcorder or an Apple iPod nano with video to share the implementation of their project with the WeAreTeachers community. The idea that receives the most votes will win an Apple iPad.
To date, WeAreTeachers has awarded close to 100 microgrants on teacher-created projects supporting teaching green, creativity and arts, digital learning, special education, student engagement, literacy and more.
