About the OnPoint Community Builder Award

The goal of the Community Builder award is to provide funding for schools to complete a project that is enriching to the school, students and faculty. The award provides four schools with a $2,000 prize, while one lucky school, determined by online community votes, will receive a $5,000 prize. In considering which applications will be selected as finalists, the following criteria is considered:

Creativity and Community

Will the project inspire creativity and foster community?

Broad Segment

Will the project reach a broad segment of the school community?

Matching Cost

Can the project be completed with the $2,000 or $5,000 Community Builder award, and if not, what is the plan to raise any outstanding funds needed?
