This workshop is designed for student teams interested in writing for a $1,000 AODA Mini-Grant.

What are they for?
Student mini-grants fund prevention and wellness projects targeting AODA or other youth risk behaviors (tobacco use, violence, bullying, suicide, traffic safety, and sexual risk behaviors) developed by students for students. Who can apply? Any group of students from a Wisconsin public school, grades K-12, can fill out the application that describes a prevention or wellness project in which they are interested. Each student group may only apply for a single project, although a school or district that has multiple groups may submit multiple applications. Students in a private school may collaborate with a public school, but may not apply directly for a student mini-grant.

What can we get?
Each funded project may be awarded up to $1,000. When are they available? Applications will be mailed to the districts in August and will also be available on the DPI website. They are due at the DPI in hard copy by the end of the business day on October 13, 2017.

What are some good ideas for projects?
Some ideas for projects are peer helper or educator programs, wellness fairs, skits, and awareness campaigns that focus on prevention for students, parents, and community members.
