The Kids In Need Foundation Presents the Elmer's Teacher Tool Kit Grants
The Kids In Need Foundation and Elmer's Products Inc., an industry leader in adhesives, arts and crafts, office and educational products, offer the Teacher Tool Kit Grant Program.
For 17 years Kids In Need has been funding exceptional classroom projects through our Teacher Grants program. Now the funding to conduct these projects in your own classroom will be available. We believe creative lesson plans should be an active part of any school's core curriculum, something Elmer's believes, also. Together we will provide teachers with the tools to strengthen critical thinking skills, creativity, and core knowledge among students.
The Elmer's Teacher Tool Kit grant awards will be based on:
- financial need (the percentage of students in your school receiving a federal free and reduced lunch)
- description of how the particular project meets the educational needs of the students and satisfies the state standards or curriculum requirements of the school
- the number of students who will benefit from the project
Please Note: Special consideration will be given to projects submitted by first year teachers and to projects that include a community service component, but all certified K-12 teachers in the U.S. are encouraged to apply and all types of projects, with or without a community service component, will be considered for funding..
Kids In Need greatly appreciates Elmer's sponsorship of this program, another way to engage students in the learning process and support students' success at school and in the future.
