Opportunity for Girls

Are you passionate about gender equity in the classroom? So is the Myra Sadker Foundation, named after a late pioneer in educational research. The foundation continues her work, and one way they do that is by sponsoring those who are promoting gender equity in schools. They have an award just for students with an idea for change and how to make it. Here's the description:

Designed to encourage student ideas, activities and projects (K-12) that promote respect for group differences, fairness, and in other ways build upon the values and contributions of Myra Sadker's work. Awards range from $100 to $1,000.

You can find the application at http://www.sadker.org/PDF/ap-student.pdf. What a cool opportunity to make a difference for girls--including yourself! If you have any questions, email dsadker@verizon.net. And if you receive an award, let us know--we'd love to profile you and your project!

Sending visions of new doors opening for girls, Bissy (Elizabeth!)
