Friday, Sept. 14, is the deadline for applying for the Fall 2012 Horizon Awards sponsored by the APS Education Foundation. The awards provide between $1,500 and $5,000 to projects in four areas:

In the past two years, the Horizon Awards have put tens of thousands of dollars into classrooms throughout the district, impacting thousands of students.

A committee of the Foundation’s Board of Directors selects recipients based on their efforts to provide innovative, quality educational opportunities to students in APS.

“We believe the Horizon Awards have been a great success, but of course there’s plenty more to do,” said Foundation Executive Director Phill Casaus.
