Creative Leadership Grants 2016
Actual product assortment may vary.
Here's how you can get started now...
In collaboration with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), Crayola offers up to 20 grants for schools in the United States or Canada. The applications will only be accepted from principals who are members of NAESP. If you are not the principal, please collaborate with your school's leader to develop the plan.
Schools who received this grant in 2015 will not be eligible to apply for a 2016-2017 grant. Instead, we urge grant winners to become judges to help score new proposals. 2015 winners may apply again in 2017.
Applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 610-515-8781, Attn: Anita DeChellis. Applications will be accepted until 12:00 Midnight ET Monday, June 20, 2016.

Review our judging rubric
There is no one best way to do this. It needs to build your school’s creative capacity and identify a group of teacher leaders who will champion this effort within your school. The focus of Creative Leadership capacity building is to provide significant, sustainable professional development, not just a one-time speaker or a solo trip to a conference (if insights are not shared school-wide.) These are just examples. The funds could be used for other innovative ideas that foster art-based interdisciplinary learning.
