The 2004 Kids In Need Teacher Grants provide funds for classroom teachers who have innovative, meritorious ideas but lack the budget to bring them to life. The mission of the SHOPA Kids In Need Foundation is to recognize, promote, and support initiatives that foster educational excellence. Projects that qualify for funding should be original ideas that make creative use of common teaching aids, approach the curriculum from an imaginative angle, or tie nontraditional concepts together to illustrate commonalities. Innovation and merit account for 40 percent of the evaluation.
