Innovation in Learning Environments Grant Winners

The Kansas City Chapter is proud to announce the winners of our first annual Innovation in Learning Environments Grant. We received 46 applicants from 14 school districts on both sides of the state line. The board reviewed the applications anonymously, with all the specific district and name information removed. The submissions were all well thought out, wonderful ideas on how to impact learning for kids in our area. It was a difficult decision, but the following 4 entries were selected as winners of $1,500 each for 2018.
