Evaluation  All wishes meeting the grant proposal requirements will be considered.  Selections will be based on:

  • Feasibility – how likely will grant materials be used
  • Sustainability – will materials be used more than once
  • Value – how does grant request align to current science standards
  • Number of students affected

We encourage you to consider the goods and services of our participating vendors when making your wish.   This vendor list will be updated frequently as new exhibitors register for our PDI.  You are not required to select from this vendor list.  Don’t forget to account for sales tax and shipping in your grant proposal.

In order to be selected to receive a grant, you must apply by October 7th, 2023 and your PDI registration MUST BE PAID by October 7, 2023.   A registration is not considered paid until we receive a check or credit card payment:  if your school is using a PO, the PO must be paid by the October 7, 2023 payment deadline.

Keep in mind that your request will be selected using the criteria above and that you will be competing with ALL 2023 PDI attendees.
