To be eligible for this grant, students must work in groups of two or more and have the support of at least one teacher or staff supervisor. The project must be developed and implemented by April 30, 2014. Applications are due Monday, Dec. 16, at 5 p.m. Submissions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or delivered to 101 Monroe Street, 10th floor in Rockville.
