While Iowa BIG was not one of the programs chosen for the XQ: Super School Project’s innovation contest, the project-based learning option was still impressive enough to win a $1 million award!
The surprise funding announcement this week came via live-feed while Iowa BIG students and staff were watching. Iowa BIG will receive the grant funds over five years.
“We will now be able to offer this program to more students and make sure any student interested in this opportunity can participate,” said Dr. Trace Pickering, Associate Superintendent.
Iowa BIG students earn school credit by working on community-based projects. Learn more about Iowa BIG here.
