Happy New Year! We’re excited to share the latest grant news and remind you of some great resources available.
We’re excited to bring back our popular Meemic Masterpieces art contest and grant opportunity, but we’re even more excited to offer a couple new twists.
This year, we’re working with AAA-The Auto Club Group to focus on three safety themes: vehicle safety, pedestrian safety and online safety. Also new this year, your students can choose to submit artwork or videos.
Up to 52 student winners will be selected. Winning artwork and videos will be featured on our Meemic Foundation website and in a virtual art gallery event later this year. Sponsoring Foundation Club members of the winning entries will receive a $300 art supplies grant for their schools, and the winning student artists will receive an HP Chromebook.
