The Garden Valley Education Foundation (GVEF) has presented $5,000 technology grants to 10 local schools. The grants are intended to be used for the purchase of any technology related service or product the district feels would best suit their needs. 

Each of the 10 schools submitted a written request for grant funds which included what the grant would be used for and how it is related to a technology need. “We were excited to see how many schools wanted to take part in the grant process,” explained Timothy Brinkman, CEO/General Manager of GVT. “Between these grants, our Esports sponsorship, and our Local Channel partnerships with the schools, it’s a great opportunity to be involved in the educational experience of our local students.”
