NBC4 Launches Make A Difference School Grant Project

Posted:

NBC4 is committed to making a difference both in and out of the classroom. That's why NBC4 is giving away $30,000 in grants to central Ohio schools this school year through a new project called NBC4 Make A Difference School Grant.

NBC4 Make A Difference School Grant will give students more chances to think, serve, shine and connect by awarding three $10,000 grants, one in each of three school size classifications. These grants will help provide resources to academic and extracurricular school programs that give kids the opportunity to grow and develop.

Starting November 12, principals should submit their nominations, up to one in each of four categories, which focus on all aspects of education experiences: Think. Serve. Shine. Connect. The public will then have the opportunity to make a positive change in their schools through engagement in online social voting via Facebook and at www.NBC4MakeADifference.com. Schools will be competing for top votes in each size classification. The top six vote getters will advance to the final round of judging which will be decided on by a panel of 5 judges. Judges will select three grand prize winners.

How it Works:

  1. Public voting begins February 4th via online social voting on the NBC4 Facebook page and at www.NBC4MakeADifference.com. The top six vote getters will advance to the final round of judging.
  2. Winners announced on May 16th. Judges will select three grand prize winners.

NBC4 news anchor Cabot Rea will provide regular reports and updates on the school grant project until the winners' are announced in May 2013.
