Education Innovation Teacher Challenge offers two $25,000 grants for unique learning opportunities

Grants sponsored by Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation and Farmers Insurance Hawaii

Farmers Insurance Hawaii and the Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation have teamed up to introduce a new educational grant opportunity for Hawaii public school teachers.

The Education Innovation Teacher Challenge will award two $25,000 grants to help Oahu and neighbor island public school teachers implement innovative and impactful learning experiences that benefit their schools, students, and the greater community.

Classroom teachers currently employed by the Hawaii Department of Education are invited to submit applications detailing their education project ideas until July 31, 2020.

A panel of local judges will review and evaluate applications using three key criteria -- innovation, community impact, and execution, including long-term sustainability. Finalists will be selected in August and two winners, one from Oahu and one from a neighboring island, will be announced in October.

Farmers Insurance has a proud history of investing in education and supporting the communities it serves. The Public Schools of Hawaii Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $4.8 million since 1990 to strengthen educational opportunities.
