PPL Educational Grants Program Encourages Environmental Action

To help empower students to make a difference, PPL is accepting applications for its 2008 Environmental Education Grant Program which focuses on renewable energy and energy conservation projects.

Applications are due October 15.

“PPL continues to look for new ways to partner with school districts in the communities where we live and work,” said Meg Welker, education relations director for PPL. “Through the Project Earth Environmental Education Grants program, we hope to encourage students to take positive steps to protect our resources.”

Through these competitive grants, schools can receive from $500 up to $5,000 in funding for projects that focus on energy and environmental issues like renewable energy demonstrations, energy conservation and the greening of schools.

Early submittals are encouraged. Winners will be announced in November.

All qualifying public, private and parochial schools near major PPL facilities are eligible for these competitive grants. Schools are strongly encouraged to partner with an organization, association or business that shares their interest in the environment, but the school must submit the application, receive the grant money and have primary responsibility for the project.
