Does your school/district have students who are working to give back to the community in which they live? Or maybe, they have expanded their reach to include the global community. If so, please encourage them to apply for one of Kentucky Association of School Administrator’s (KASA) Student Impact Grants. This grant funds schools in Kentucky (grades K-12) who strive to take the next step in education by using project based learning in their classrooms and giving back to their community or the global community.
This application is for a grant of up to $2,500 awarded to a project based learning class or group. Applicants for this grant may be students or classes from any grade level in the state of Kentucky. The applicants will be divided into four different age levels (grades K-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12) and there will be one recipient from each level.
In addition to the application, students are required to submit a one-two minute video introducing their project and class/group. The video should explain who your group is and your goals for the project.
Teachers may give guidance to students, but the intent is for students to answer the grant application questions and to create the video themselves.
- 1-2 minute video (150MB or less)
- Follows copyright laws and grant guidelines
- Video file saved using the format: pblgrant_districtname_principalslastname_grade
- Upload video to YouTube or Vimeo and share link where requested on application

Applications and Videos are due no later than April 28, 2017.
