Mini-grants will fund class water projects
Educators interested in securing grant funding for classroom projects that focus on water quality, natural systems, water conservation, alternative water sources, flood protection or watersheds are encouraged to apply for a Splash! mini-grant through the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The goal of the mini-grant program is to promote hands-on water resources education that teaches students about their local watersheds and the water resources within them. The mini-grants provide up to $5,000 per school on a reimbursement basis only and are available to public, private and homeschool teachers. Grant applications are due Friday. For information, log on to the district's Web site at WaterMatters.org/mini-grants to fill out the online application. For additional information, call Mary Margaret Hull, lead communications coordinator, at 1-800-423-1476, ext. 4774.
