The Kids In Need Foundation, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to providing free school supplies to economically disadvantaged school children and under-funded teachers, is launching its fourth annual teacher grants program sponsored by Elmer’s Products Inc., an industry leader in adhesives, arts and crafts, office and educational products. Beginning February 14, teachers nationwide can visit the Kids In Need Foundation website to apply for an Elmer’s Teacher Tool Kit grant that can range from $100 to $500. The grants will be given to certified K-12 teachers who wish to conduct classroom projects from the website catalog of award winning projects previously funded by the Kids In Need Foundation. More than 1,200 projects are in the catalog. Applicants will be asked to register for the Elmer’s Teacher Club, which offers special features and benefits throughout the year for teachers. Applications will be available online at www.kinf.org. This year, 270-300 grants sponsored by Elmer’s will be provided to teachers nationwide. Grant awards will be based on financial need and how well the chosen projects meet the educational needs of the applicants’ students. Special consideration is given to first-year teachers.
