After Kenny announced General Motors and Discovery Education’s call for entries into their 2008 LIVE GREEN Teacher Grant Awards, educator applicants from across the U.S. began sustainably swooning Discovery Education judges, submitting essays about how they intended to teach their students about renewable energy, clean technologies and environmentalism, as a whole.
In my opinion, any teacher who took the time to apply for this grant deserves a green apple but with only 40 available $1000 grants, only a select few walked away as winners.

We are so grateful for this grant award. We will use the funds in my classroom to extend the sustainable food and energy projects that we are working on in my technology education curriculum. My students will be thrilled.
