WHO WE ARE: Equip is a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our mission is to connect and support students, athletes, coaches, educators, practitioners and families. We envision a community where everyone has access to participate in programs that bring them health and joy.
MEETING THE MOMENT AWARD: So many students have faced adversity this past year. We have seen food insecurity, equity disparities and mental health emergencies all wrapped up in a global pandemic. Teachers have been bravely getting students through it all. We wanted to spotlight a few special educators who have met these challenging moments with creativity, compassion, innovation and kindness.
We would like to hear how you were inspired by current event challenges to “meet the moment” in the classroom. Please include specific details on how you worked to Equip and inspire your students, your school, community, etc. We would also like to hear about any future plans you have to continue your efforts next year.
Equip will give away $3000 in educational awards to Novato Unified School District teachers. $1000 prizes will be given out to one elementary, one middle school and one high school teacher this summer.
QUALIFICATIONS: Must be a current Novato Unified School District teacher who taught at NUSD during the 2020-2021 school year.
APPLICATION TIMELINE: Applications must be submitted by September 9, 2021. You can apply online at www.equipsports.org. Winners will be announced on or before October 1, 2021.
