Massive thanks to those who put forward their innovative and novel ideas for Inspiring Australia’s WA Small Grants in 2020. We received almost $145,000 worth of funding requests across 70 applications for event ideas from across the state – it was a very tough process deciding who would receive funding.
Our independent judging panel awarded $30,000 in small grant funding to 16 successful applicants this year.
Supported activities in 2020 include: a spy school workshop; an event to document coastal traditional ecological knowledge of a regional WA community; a roboto-thon for primary school-aged students; Science Fair and STEM Community Engagement events, and star-gazing activities across WA.
Congratulations to our successful grant recipients for 2020!
