Bright Minds Foundation Awards Grants

Howard County public schools faculty were among several educators awarded funding to launch projects through the county’s nonprofit Bright Minds education foundation, school officials have announced.

Award recipients included Jamie Proctor of Wilde Lake High School, who won $2,000 for the project “STEM for Inquiry Based Learning,” and Ann Strozyk of the Howard County Conservancy, who won $2,000 for the project “Next Steps with GPS.”

Bright Minds was launched in 2006 by the Howard County school board to fund, among other things, initiatives that are not covered in the school’s budget. The foundation awards $10,000 in grants annually.
