Super School Contest from the NFL Network- The NFL PLAY 60 Super School program has been part of the league’s Back to Football efforts since 2010, recognizing deserving elementary and middle schools across the country. Teachers, school administrators and PTO/PTA leaders are asked to describe their school’s pride for their local NFL club and their school’s commitment to youth health and wellness education. Each year, 34 schools are recognized as NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools for their efforts and awarded a $10,000 youth health and wellness grant and a visit with one or more NFL players, mascots, cheerleaders and other team personnel.

Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers from the National Science Foundation- The ITEST program funds foundational and applied research projects addressing the development, implementation, and dissemination of innovative strategies, tools, and models for engaging students to be aware of STEM and cognate careers, and to pursue formal school-based and informal out-of-school educational experiences to prepare for such careers. ITEST supports projects that: (1) increase students' awareness of STEM and cognate careers; (2) motivate students to pursue the appropriate education pathways for STEM and cognate careers; and/or (3) provide students with technology-rich experiences that develop disciplinary-based knowledge and practices, and non-cognitive skills (e.g., critical thinking and communication skills) needed for entering STEM workforce sectors. ITEST projects may adopt an interdisciplinary focus on one or more STEM domains or focus on sub discipline(s) within a domain. ITEST projects must involve students, and may also include teachers. ITEST is especially interested in broadening participation of student groups from traditionally underrepresented in STEM and cognate intensive education and workforce domains. Strongly encouraged are projects that actively engage business and industry to better ensure K-12 experiences are likely to foster the skill-sets of emerging STEM and cognate careers. ITEST supports two project types: Strategies and SPrEaD (Successful Project Expansion and Dissemination) projects. Strategies projects address the creation and implementation of innovative technology-related interventions that support ITEST's objectives. SPrEaD projects support the wider and broader dissemination and examination of innovative interventions to generate evidence and understanding regarding contextual factors that operate to enhance, moderate, or constrain the desired results.
