Congratulations to our 2023 Mini-Grant Winners!

EENC recognizes that in our field, sometimes a little bit goes a long way in making a difference for the teachers, non-formal educators, government employees, students and volunteers we work with. To help with that, each year EENC awards mini-grants of up to $250 to support projects that promote excellence in environmental education.

We are proud to announce this year's winners.
