Crayola Invites Proposals from Elementary Schools for 2015 Creative Leadership Grants

Crayola, in partnership with the National Association of Elementary School Principals, is accepting applications for the 2015 Creative Leadership grant program.

The program will award up to twenty grants of $2,500 in support of creative leadership team-building programs in elementary schools in the United States and Canada. In addition, each program will receive an in-kind grant of Crayola products valued at $1,000.

Creative leadership projects might involve building a creativity professional development plan that includes a series of workshops delivered by teachers, for teachers; bringing in an arts organization that has expertise in integrating art across the curriculum and having a series of training workshops followed up by co-teaching sessions so the information gets embedded into classroom practices; and/or organizing grade level creativity teams who have monthly collaboration meetings where they design lessons and coach each other on the implementation of art-infused, cross-curricular lessons.

To be eligible, school principals must be a NAESP member and not have won the award in 2014. (This year’s winners are eligible to apply again in 2016.)

For complete program guidelines and application instructions, see the Crayola website.
