Middle school teacher grant money available

The Office Depot is accepting onling grant applications for middle school teachers through Oct. 30.

Kids in Need Teacher Grants are awarded in amounts from $100 to $500, and are offered through a partnership between The Office Depot Star Teacher Program and The Office Depot Foundation.

The money is intended to fund projects that make creative use of common teaching aids, approach curriculum from an imaginative angle, or tie nontraditional concepts together for the purpose of illustrating commonalities. Innovation and merit account for 40 percent of the application evaluation.

Office Depot seeks to be the sole funding agent for each project. In exceptional cases, a grant may be awarded in conjunction with funding from another source, they state on the website.

To apply, middle school teachers must register for the Star Teacher Program, which also qualifies them for discounts. Visit http://bit.ly/oNdb9p to become a Star Teacher and http://bit.ly/oNdfQ9 to apply for a grant.
