June 23, 2016
(BURNABY, BC) June 23, 2016 – This week, Best Buy Canada announced the return of the School Tech Grants program, which offers financial grants of up to $10,000 to schools for the purchase of new classroom technology. The program is currently accepting online applications from elementary schools (Grades K-8) across Canada at www.bestbuy.ca/schooltechgrants. Application deadline is Thursday, July 7, 2016 and recipients will be announced in September.
The School Tech Grant program is unique as it allows schools to outline exactly how much funding is needed and specifically what technology the schools need to take learning to the next level for their students.
“We continue to see a tremendous amount of interest from teachers and principals excited by the possibilities that can happen when students have access to technology,” said Andrea MacBeth, Community Relations Manager, Best Buy Canada. “We know how amazing technology can be and the impact it can have in the hands of students. Best Buy Canada wants to provide schools opportunities to access the latest in modern tech.”
The Best Buy School Tech Grants are available in two categories:
Since the program started, Best Buy Canada has awarded $2.3 million in grants to more than 100 Canadian schools as part of their ongoing commitment to supporting students and education in Canada.
New this year
Best Buy Canada has partnered with My Class Needs (MCN), a Canadian charity that connects classroom projects with donors through a crowdfunding website. Together, Best Buy and MCN will be providing the opportunity for elementary school teachers to apply for micro-grants of up to $1000 for new tech. This additional funding aims to support individual classroom projects related to Science, Technology, Engineering or Math with the technology needed to either be established or grow.
“We are thrilled to partner with Best Buy Canada on this new initiative,” said Amy Coupal, MCN CEO. “The support of Best Buy allows MyClassNeeds.ca to bring innovative resources to more schools across Canada and directly impact the educational experience of students. I’m grateful for Best Buy Canada’s leadership and commitment to supporting students by giving them greater access to innovative learning resources.”
Teachers can apply for a Best Buy School Tech Micro Grant through MyClassNeeds.ca from July 18 - September 9, 2016.
