Grants of up to $4,000 and grants of up to $7,500 to New York, Vermont, and Quebec nonprofit organizations and government agencies for youth and student-focused heritage projects in the Lake Champlain Basin. Funding will support projects that actively engage youth and students in the research and discovery of the cultural or natural heritage associated with their community, and the creation of new artistic expressions, or interpretation of those topics utilizing fresh perspectives and/or new technology.
The meanings of local cultural and natural heritage will be showcased to new audiences through research, interpretation, music, dance, writing, visual arts, and social media. Grants may include transportation costs associated with bringing youth and student groups together to the extent that it is necessary to complete the activities described in the grant workplan. In all cases, an emphasis will be placed on the commercial heritage of the community of focus.
