Delaware high school educators who are helping to develop the state’s entrepreneurship ecosystem in their classrooms have until Friday, Dec. 6, to apply for University of Delaware Horn Entrepreneurship’s┬áInnovative Delaware Educator Awards (IDEA).

Up to 12 educators will receive Horn Youth benefits including an up to $500 mini grant for a project, plus support, resources and some clout to go with it.

“It is designed to help build a network of teachers throughout the state that through their work will help build an entrepreneurial ecosystem from an earlier age,” said Horn’s Vanessa Spence.

Horn Entrepreneurship, which was recently granted $50,000 from the Small Business Administration, was named one of the nation’s top undergrad entrepreneur programs by Entrepreneur magazine┬áin November.

Awardees will be announced on Dec. 19, and on Jan. 28, there will be a kickoff event where awardees will officially launch their projects, culminating in an exhibition in May.

You can nominate yourself or an educator you think fits the bill. Eligible applicants are full-time secondary educators who have been with a Delaware school for at least one year.
