The One Classroom at a Time program is now in its third season! Thanks to our sponsor, MOR Furniture For Less, the One Classroom at a Time program is able to help public school teachers of Kern County. Effective March 3, 2009, we will now be giving away $1,000 each month to classes in Eyewitness News' viewing area. The program is open to public school Pre-K programs through 12th grade in Kern County. Teachers, if your class is in need of money that would help enrich your students' learning experience, apply for this grant!
Application and award dates for 2013 - we must have your proposal by midnight the night before the meeting date. Deadline and presentation dates are subject to change without notice.
