Neshaminy HS a finalist in $100K grant competition

In the spring of 2018, Farmers Insurance announced that Neshaminy High School was a final­ist in their $100,000 Dream Big Grant com­pe­ti­tion — one of only 15 in the nation and the only one in Pennsylvania.

The Neshaminy com­mu­ni­ty is ral­ly­ing to help to fin­ish the job and secure one of five of these grants to be award­ed in December. During the month of October, vis­i­tors to the Farmers Insurance Dream Big 100K Contest web­site can vote once a day per email for this grant pro­pos­al, which was sub­mit­ted by NHS sci­ence teacher James Maloney in col­lab­o­ra­tion with his Neshaminy HS col­league Jacqueline Rippert. It will involve stu­dents across sub­ject areas col­lab­o­rat­ing to cre­ate a ‘Greenhouse Classroom’ to research, plan, grow, process and dis­trib­ute a sus­tain­able sup­ply of pro­duce right in the high school.
