EEA offers mini-grants up to $1,000 to current EEA members for environmental education/performing and visual arts projects in honor of environmental educator, Petey Giroux (1945-2008). Applications are due by March 1 each year.
Petey brought much joy and enthusiasm to her work and was a master at using the power of the performing and visual arts to support her teaching. In presenting these grants to any Georgia educator of students in grades K-12 (including those in public and private schools, home schools, scout troops, religious groups, community organizations, 4-H Clubs, etc.), we honor Petey’s life of service and her legacy of environmental education through the arts.
