SWFWMD Awards 21 Manatee County Teachers Education Grants

Twenty Manatee County teachers and one private school teacher are among the educators who were awarded Splash! school grants through the Southwest Florida Water Management District. This year 206 Splash! grants were awarded to educators across the District's 16-county region.

Mary Margaret Hull, lead communications coordinator, attributes the effectiveness of the grant program in Manatee County to the strong partnership with Manatee County Schools, which helped get the word out to teachers. Judy Griffin, Manatee County curriculum specialist, serves as the District's liaison to teachers.
