Media Literacy Project Grant



Grant deadline has passed for the 2017-18 School Year. Thank you to all that applied.

The New York State Educational Media/Technology Association provides three annual Media Literacy Grants in the amount of $1,250 for certified teachers in New York State who are working with K-12 students on media literacy. Media Literacy is defined as the ability to comprehend, design, and produce media. It includes critical thinking skills used to evaluate and analyze information in a variety of formats. Media Literacy is essential to be able to distinguish between fact and fiction.

The purposes of the grant are to:

  • Support educators who provide resources and services that correlate to state and national learning standards for instructional excellence promoting media literacy.
  • To provide funds for research projects or demonstration projects that can be replicated in other areas across the state and nation.
Examples include:

A film literacy course held after school
Learning about the effective creation and use of media in student work
Using video effectively in your lesson plans
