How You Can Help Children Learn For the Future

The CST Learning Project is looking for innovative ideas to revolutionize the way children learn, grow and develop

Sometimes I find myself thinking that there must be a better way to do something. It might be as simple as charging my phone when I get sick of carrying around extra chargers—why hasn’t someone made a phone that charges with solar power? Imagine what kind of a place the world would be if more people took the initiative to find creative solutions to make the world run a bit smoother?

And what better place to start focusing these ideas than the future—our kids!

Do you and your organization, community or institution have an idea that could change the way kids aged 0-17 will learn, grow and develop? CST Learning Project is giving away up to $250,000 for innovative ideas that do just that.

The grand prize is an amazing $50,000 to make your idea a reality. But there are many secondary prizes to be won to help fund projects—last year 14 separate projects were funded through CST Learning Project.

Spring 2014’s grand prize winner was Camp Ten Oaks with their plan to engage and empower children and youth from LGBTQ+ communities with their week-long overnight camp in Kingston, Ontario. The money helped to ensure that the not-for-profit volunteer-run sleep away camp for 72 campers could continue to run.

If you are a parent, teacher or not-for-profit organization that works with kids, you have until May 1st to submit your idea. Remember your idea should be:

  • Innovative—creativity, originality and resourcefulness will get you extra points here.
  • Impactful—your idea should have an effect on as many children as possible. 
  • Viability—be ambitious, but your idea should fit with your community and your budget breakdown.

Idea submission opens on April 7th until May 1st and the early bird draw will take place on April 17th. On June 9th, the winners will be announced.

Visit learningproject.cst.org to learn more about this great project, to check out past winners and of course to submit your idea now.

And if you don’t have an idea of your own, be sure to vote and help decide which projects should be funded by CST Learning Project!

This post was brought to you by CST, but the opinions are my own.
