Imagination Press grants being offered

Eatel Corp.’s Imagination Press Book Grant is back for the seventh consecutive year.

The program awards 10 grants to Ascension Parish public school second-, third- and fourth-grade teachers.

Each year, winning classes write their own stories, design their own art, and prepare their books for publication. Then, in conjunction with Internet-based photo book publisher Picaboo, Eatel publishes the works into hardbound books.

Imagination Press applications are being accepted through Sept. 27 and can be found online at eatel.com/imagination.

All entries will be judged on concept originality and creativity, a news release from Eatel said.

Teachers may submit one grant application for each class or section taught. A teacher applying for multiple grants may submit a unique idea with each grant submission.

Students in each class will receive a copy of their book to share with family and friends and a copy of their book will be given to each school’s library.
