The program will award up to twenty grants of $2,500 each in support of innovative creative leadership team-building programs at the elementary school level. In addition, each program will receive an in-kind grant of Crayola products valued at $1,000. Examples of creative leadership projects include building a creativity professional development plan that includes a series of workshops delivered by teachers, for teachers; bringing in an arts organization that has expertise in integrating art across the curriculum and having a series of training workshops followed up by co-teaching sessions so the information gets embedded into classroom teachers' practices; and organizing grade-level creativity teams who have monthly collaboration meetings where they design lessons and coach each other to implement art-infused cross-curricular lessons. Eligibility: To be eligible, school principals must be a member of NAESP. Deadlines: Annually each June
