12 Oct Georgia Red Ribbon Week: Mini-Grant Winners
AVPRIDE, as a part of its role in the state-sponsored Alcohol Prevention Initiative, wanted to support schools planning Red Ribbon Week activities during October 23-31 with $1000 in mini-grants to supplement current budget constraints. Thanks to the Association of Village PRIDE, Inc. (AVPRIDE), 10 schools have been selected to receive monetary assistance to help fund their programs and activities.
A total of $1,000 in mini-grants was awarded by AVPRIDE as part of its role in the state sponsored Alcohol Prevention Initiative. All schools were invited to apply for a mini-grant by describing their plans for Red Ribbon Week and how they would use the money to supplement the activities. Mini-grants awarded ranged from $50 to $125, depending on the number of students impacted. Schools interested competed through an application for the mini-grants. Ten schools were chosen as recipients and they are:
1. The Alternative Educational Program
2. Fayette County High School
3. Flat Rock Middle School
4. Hood Elementary
5. Huddleston Elementary
6. Mainstay Program at Rivers
