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"
