Funding Opportunities for Your School - August 31 2018
1.       Community Sport Infrastructure Grant
Sport Australia, the Australian Government's lead agency for sport and physical activity, has launched a new Community Sport Infrastructure grant program. Grants of up to $500,000 are available to support small to medium scale local community sport infrastructure improvement projects and aims to encourage greater levels of participation in community sport and physical activity through provision of safer and more inclusive community sporting hubs. An education institution in an outer regional, remote, or very remote location can apply (but only if community sport infrastructure exists on land owned or managed by the institution's council/board of management). Applications close 14 September 2018. https://www.sportaus.gov.au/grants_and_funding/community_sport_infrastructure_grant_program

2.       MusicNSW Indent Event Development Grant Program (NSW)
The Indent event development grants fund teams of young people who are interested in staging their own all ages, drug and alcohol-free music events. The grants are open to a group of at least five young people (aged 12-25) in partnership with a support organisation such as a local council or local youth service. Applications close 5pm, Thursday, 20 September 2018. http://www.musicnsw.com/funding/

3.     Writing for Life Competition - Young Writers Micro Fiction Competition Years 7-12 (WA)
Western Australian high school students are being asked to "step into the minds" of someone who is waiting and wishing for a second chance at life - just like some 1,400 Australians currently listed on the organ transplant waiting list. All secondary students from grade 7-12 across WA are eligible to enter the competition. Applications close Friday, 21 September 2018. https://donatelife.gov.au/resources/school-resources/writing-life-competition-donatelife-wa

4.       Extra! New schools newspaper award has great prizes
Front Page is an initiative of Fairfax Media and Australian Teachers of Media (ATOM). It provides Australian schools and classes with the opportunity to create and submit a short school newspaper, and win fantastic prizes in the process, including six iPads for each winning school or class in each of the three age-group categories. Front Page is open to primary and secondary students across Australia. Entries close midday AEST, Friday 21 September 2018. For more information on Front Page, see the website http://frontpage.online/about/

5.       St George Foundation Community Grants (ACT, NSW, QLD or WA)
The St George Foundation Community Grants invest in projects that will improve the lives of children in Australia who are physically, socially or economically disadvantaged. The program partners with small community organisations who attract little funding from government and who aren't big enough to generate significant fundraising income on their own. Applications close 28 September 2018. https://promos.stgeorge.com.au/stgeorgefoundation/#about

6.       The Archibull Prize
The Archibull Prize is an innovative hands on program that sees urban and rural schools research an agricultural industry and express their findings through artwork. Each participating school is provided with a life size fibreglass cow (or calf if you are a primary school!) on which students create an artwork about an allocated agricultural industry. In 2019 the feature industries will be grain, cotton, cattle and sheep, wool, eggs and poultry, rice, pork and horticulture. Expressions of interest close on 22 March 2019.
