Grant Spotlight: We the People 2018

January 29, 2018 / Catherine Nicholas / Spotlight - Grants

Congratulations to Sam Ulmschneider’s We the People team on winning the state title once again this year!  This makes the 20th state-level win for MLW/GSGIS teams.  As in years past, the Foundation has committed to providing $20,000 to offset the costs of the team competing at Nationals.  The competition was free for qualifying teams for many years, but after Congress declined to renew funding, costs were passed along to the teams.  Last year, the total cost for the MLWGS team to attend Nationals was roughly $31,000.  The Foundation provided a grant of $20,000 and helped to raise the rest of the funds needed through a We the People fundraising campaign.  We’re proud to support so many of the programs that make MLWGS a great place to be a student.
