The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting grant applications for local teachers who have developed innovative programs that aren’t supported by the district’s school budget.

The Chamber awards grants annually to teachers who demonstrate that their projects fit a specific educational need, are unique to their respective schools and are not supported by the school system’s annual budget. The goal is to help local students to delve into unique projects, learn new skills and pursue subjects that are not included in standard curriculum.

In the 2021-2022 school year, the Chamber of Commerce funded projects focused on science, engineering, history, writing and arts. At Concord High School, the “We are America” literary project let students dive into history and personal storytelling and at Concord’s Abbot-Downing School, students put engineering and geometry skills to use with 3D printers. At Bow High School, students collected data on a local salamander population. At Bow Memorial School, a display area was created for student artwork and a therapeutic sensory space was built for students with autism and other developmental and cognitive challenges.

Over the years, the Chamber’s Business and Education initiative has awarded over $161,000 in grants to local educators. Funding for this initiative is provided by the Funds for Education Golf Tournament, which will be held Aug. 3 at Beaver Meadow Golf Course.

Teachers can apply for the grants by July 1.
