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. 

We are pleased to announce the five winners for 2015, who are awarded $6,000, and the four runners-up, who are awarded $2500. This is double the amount awarded in 2014. The Margot Stern Strom Innovation Grants are made possible through the generous support of the Fialkow family.

Our Past Award-Winners

The Margot Stern Strom Innovation Grants grew out of a teaching award established in 2006 to recognize Facing History-trained educators that are thinking outside the box to transform schools and impact student learning.
