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.
Ginny Paul of Beaufort County Schools for "STEAM in the PARK"
Kayla McCoy of Wilkes Soil & Water Conservation District for "Vermicomposting in the Classroom"
Mir Youngquist-Thurow of Agape Center for Environmental Education for "Water Quality Chemical Resupply"
