Applications will be accepted until Nov. 1, 2021. Applicants must be from a school located in Larimer, Weld, or Boulder County. Priority will be given to schools and teachers serving PVREA members. Projects should be STEAM-focused – science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics. Applicants may receive up to $2,000 per teacher, per school year. Other details can be found online at
