Best Buy Teach Awards
The Best Buy Teach Award program recognizes creative uses of interactive technology in K-12 classrooms. Winning programs focus on kids using technology to learn standards-based curriculum, rather than on teaching students to use technology or educators using technology that children aren't able to use hands-on. The purpose of the Best Buy Teach Award program is to reward schools for the successful interactive programs they have launched using available technology. Please do not be discouraged from applying if your school does not have the most current equipment.

Eligibility:All accredited, nonprofit K-12 public, private, parochial and charter schools within the U.S. and Puerto Rico are eligible to apply. Please note that in order to apply to the Best Buy Teach Award program you must first register as an applicant and identify the Best Buy store located nearest to your school.

Funding:Awards will range from $1,000 to $5,000 based on specific school needs. $10,000 will be awarded to up to 15 applicants supporting 9th grade programs.
