Scholarship for a District Team – The H. Charles Larracey Memorial Scholarship is awarded in recognition of H. Charles Larracey, a distinguished New Hampshire educational leader from Keene and one of the original founders of this conference. Two team scholarships for a full day at the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference are granted. These two team scholarships are given annually in memory of Chuck’s belief in the potential of teamwork and the power of high-quality professional development.
Successful teams will consist of 8 to 12 members from a school system, including a broad representation of roles (teachers, administrators, school board members, and others). Your application should include a list of members and your reason for applying. It should also signify your willingness to use the results for improving the integration of technology in your schools. The scholarship includes free registration for all team members for one day (preferably the same day) at the conference. The amount of this award ranges from $1,280 to $1,920 per team.
