Nearly 30 educators were awarded more than $83,000 in Horizon grants earlier this year.

Is it your turn?

The APS Education Foundation is encouraging district schools and teachers at all levels to apply for the Spring 2012 Horizon Awards. The awards, funded by the Foundation’s Horizon Campaign, will provide between $1,500 and $5,000 to projects in four areas:

  • Literacy
  • Fine arts
  • Science/technology/engineering/math and
  • Middle and high school activities.

Applications for the Horizon Awards will be accepted by the Foundation through next Friday, March 2. A committee will select recipients based on their efforts to provide innovative, quality educational opportunities to students in APS.

Approximately 8,000 APS students have been touched by this awards campaign since its inception just over a year ago. The awards are funded through the Foundation's Horizon Campaign, a quest to obtain $1 million in private funding from the community.
