Media Literacy Project Grant
Each year the Educational Media Technology Association funds two grants for projects supporting Media Literacy. The application is attached below.
Purpose of the grant:
Amount of Grant: This grant is for $1,000 for a period of one year. Two grants are awarded each year.
Media Literacy is a series of communication competencies, including the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, and communicate information in a variety of forms, including print and non-print messages. Media literacy empowers people to be both critical thinkers and creative producers of an increasingly wide range of messages using image, language, and sound. It is the skillful application of literacy skills to media and technology messages.
