CenturyLink/OSPI Teachers & Technology Grant Program

CenturyLink supports a competitive grant program — Teachers & Technology — designed to recognize K-12 educators who are creative technology integrators. The grant program awards $10,000 to each of nine teachers or teacher teams in Washington state. Teachers & Technology was funded formerly by the Qwest Foundation.

Congratulations to Our 2012 Grant Award Winners!
Winning projects come from across Washington, ready to launch a series of creative and challenging learning experiences in the 2012-13 school year. Students will develop a competition-level robot primed to take the field at a regional meet, make documentaries that investigate why populations migrate to specific areas, design and fabricate 3D product models, and much more. The variety and scope of our 2012 learning projects touch all core subjects, and integrate state learning standards with Web 2.0 technologies.
