Established in 2006, the Margot Stern Strom Innovation Grants support Facing History and Ourselves educators who want to bring their ideas for classroom projects to life. The grants are an opportunity for educators to deepen their work with Facing History, and to use our content in new and inventive ways. Grant winners solve problems, address important issues, and inspire their students to make a difference.
