Two new grant opportunities are available to programs that weave literacy into Project-Based Learning activities.
Dollar General is offering grants of up to $4000 to programs that emphasize literacy in youth education. Literacy is an essential part of the discovery process, and reading, writing and other forms of communication should be woven into every PBL plan. A number of sample projects that incorporate literacy are available on this site.
The PBS Kids Go! writing contest provides OST programs another opportunity to incorporate literacy into PBL. Students in grades K-3 can compete for prizes in this short story contest.
