CenturyLink is on a mission to help schools acquire the technology they need to prepare students for a high tech future. The company's Teachers and Technology program has awarded more than $650,000 in grants to more than 114 northwest classrooms to date. This year, they'll select 20 more clasrooms to share in $100,000 in grants.
Sue Anderson, Vice President and General Manager of CenturyLink Puget Sound, joined Margaret to talk more about the grant program and how schools can apply. They were also joined by Kathy Egawa, Librarian at Pathway K-8 School in West Seattle, to share how her school benefitted from receiving a grant.
CenturyLink will accept grant applications through January 10, 2014. Schools can apply by visiting this website: http://oetc.org/centurylink/
The review and approval process will run from January to March, 2014 and winning schools will be notified in April 2014.
