The Office Depot® Star Teacher Program in conjunction with the Office Depot® Foundation are proud to be national sponsors of the Kids In Need Teacher Grants program with "Ready, Steady, GO!," a grants initiative especially for middle school teachers being conducted by the Kids In Need Foundation.
The purpose of the $100 to $500 grants is to fund projects that make creative use of common teaching aids, approach curriculum from an imaginative angle, or tie nontraditional concepts together for the purpose of illustrating commonalities. The Ready, Steady, GO! grant application must be used only by middle school teachers (certified teachers from the 6-8 grade level) teaching in the subject of the project at public, private, charter, or parochial schools within the U.S. The teachers must register for the Star Teacher Program. Star Teachers get rewarded every day at Office Depot®. The free membership offers teachers 10% back in rewards on ink, toner, and paper and a 15% instant discount on copy and print services, plus invitations to exclusive Teacher Appreciation Events throughout the year.
The Office Depot® Foundation invites you to visit Caring Connection, a user-friendly, interactive website to help you learn about meaningful and convenient ways to "Put your Passion into Action" by volunteering where you live, work, and play.
