You might have heard that Washington is applying for– and actually has a real shot at winning–a $60 million Race to the Top Early Learning Challenge grant from the federal government for our statewide early learning system. In order make sure we win, we need YOU. All these big federal grant applications require letters of support from the community. The League of Education Voters is doing one from our organization, as are many other organizations across state. But the cherry on top of our application sundae is one REALLY BIG letter of support from the public (parents, teachers, kids, early learning professionals, advocates, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors and you). We have partnered with our allies across the state to give you that chance.
Go to WAChallenge.org, and sign on to tell the Feds that Washington is Up to the Challenge. It only takes a minute!
