• This is a cash grant by the Board of Directors to a member of an FCIS school’s faculty, staff
  or administration. The actual amount of the grant will be determined by the Board.

• The intent of this award is to better serve FCIS member schools while enhancing your
  school’s program.

  shared with all Council schools.

• It is not required that the project be completed during the current school year, although if not,
  an estimate of its completion date should be given. A presentation of the winning project
  should be made at the 2011 Convention in Weston (Ft. Lauderdale Area).

• All winning projects must be submitted to the FCIS State Office in an electronic version
  after the Convention. The Council will distribute to the member schools.
