Amana Academy is one of only four schools globally to win a $2,000 grant as part of the Kid Power-WWE: Classroom Comeback Sweepstakes. Kindergarten students and teachers at the Fulton County public charter school won the grant after participating in the UNICEF Kid Power philanthropy challenge. During the challenge, students got active in order to provide protein-rich meals globally and plant trees locally. The Kindergarten classes were able to donate 186 meals and plant 118 trees, which qualified them for the global sweepstakes.
Amana’s Kindergarten teachers were introduced to the Unicef Kid Power Philanthropic Platform by a fellow colleague. They began actively using the platform in February as a way to get students moving in the classroom while making meaningful contributions and connections. You can learn more on the school’s website.
