Illinois Press Foundation offers grants to schools
SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois Press Foundation wants to know what Illinois high schools need to boost their media programs. Would a new computer help? How about a professional camera complete with zoom lenses? Or maybe a printer or layout software or high definition video camera?
The IPF is asking schools to submit grant requests for up to $1,500 each. The deadline to submit requests is Feb. 28.
“This is free money,” said Dennis DeRossett, executive director of the Illinois Press Association and IPF. “We want to help ensure that high school media programs are strong and vibrant. As budgets get tight, these programs, like band and chorus, are often among the first to be cut with tragic results. We hope to fill in some of the budget gaps and preserve these vital programs.”
