** First of all, we would like to apologize for not announcing Generate STEAM grant winners on Friday. It was a difficult decision as we had several great applications. However, we have chosen two winners. LTVEC likes to surprise each winner at his or her school. That being said, we surprised our Loudon County winner on Friday. Due to Monroe County's fall break, we have not had the opportunity to surprise our other winner. We ask for your patience as we will award her next week.

Little Tennessee Valley Educational Cooperative is excited to announce that we will be accepting applications for our GENERATE STEAM teacher scholarship!
