New SEMA Grant to Help Elementary Students Engage with Automotive Hobby
SEMA has launched an Automotive Aftermarket Grant Program to engage elementary school teachers and students across the nation in the automotive hobby, career path and lifestyle.
According to SEMA, the program will offer grants of up to $1,000 to at least 50 elementary school teachers to support the incorporation of a hands-on, interactive automotive lesson plan or activity into their classrooms.
“Ideas for the automotive-driven projects are solely up to the creativity of the teachers applying for the grants and must be incorporated into their curriculum before the end of the 2018-2019 school year,” according to a press release from SEMA. “This program directly supports SEMA’s youth-engagement initiatives to inspire and ignite the next generation of automotive enthusiasts.”
Educators may apply here for up to $1,000 in grants to fund their automotive-inspired projects. The application period will end Dec. 10.
Industry professionals can support the program by sharing details with local elementary schools and teachers.
