STOMP WELLNESS GRANTS
STOMP Wellness Grants are the signature wellness program for the Foundation for Leon County Schools. The primary goal of the STOMP Wellness Grant program is to promote healthy life choices and help change school environments. it is an online grant application process that include requirements, such as: holding an annual field day; implementing healthy snack initiatives; hosting an annual health fair; creating mile clubs for students/teachers; building and sustaining school gardens; incorporating brain breaks during academics; and forming student STOMP teams to participate in the 1 mile fun run at the Annual STOMP event held in April.

HOW OUR GRANT PROCESS WORKS
Grants are awarded based on projects that are substantive in content and have potential to make the greatest impact in the classroom. The grant application must demonstrate instruction aligned with school and district goals, measurable educational impacts, and the ability to be replicated for ongoing and future implementation in the classroom.
A committee composed of Foundation members, business partners and educators review the grant applications. Projects are evaluated on their potential benefit to students, the number of students involved, project creativity and innovation, effective use of resources, potential sponsor support, evaluation methods and program replication.
