The Naperville Education Foundation has kicked off their 22nd annual grant season.
This year was a little different though, as winners had to “knock the socks off” the grant evaluation committee and wow them into handing out funding; thus, the newly named NEF WOW Awards.
The six committee categories are math and science, fine arts, cultural, health and physical development, literacy, and general.
Each picked one winner from District 203 who was surprised during the school day with their award.
Anne Neal and Anthony Miser from Naperville Central will be awarded the final grant for “Redhawk Runway” on April 20; they were unfortunately out of town for this week’s surprises.
The Naperville Education Foundation has now surpassed the million-dollar mark for their grant funding.
