One Class at a Time is a joint effort between News Channel 21 and local sponsors to help fulfill needs of area schools across Central Oregon. The campaign will award $5,000 each school year by identifying and funding applications for ten $500 classroom projects in the Central Oregon school districts. Schools must be within Deschutes, Jefferson or Crook County.
One Class at a Time grant applications will be chosen on merit criteria. Criteria will be largely based upon imaginative, sustainable ideas that will have significant impact and ongoing relevance. Field trips and other similar short-term efforts will likely not be considered. Nominations will be reviewed monthly by a committee represented by News Channel 21, One Class at a Time sponsors and area educators. This committee will also select the ten winning nominations throughout the school year.
School teachers, administrators and the general public are encouraged to nominate a classroom by completing the nomination form below. The award presentation will be featured on News Channel 21 Morning and Evening News programs as well as on this KTVZ.com “One Class at a Time” contest page and via social media at News Channel 21 Facebook.
