“Kohl’s is an amazing partner and has provided phenomenal resources to allow us to empower students to connect what they learn in the classroom and apply it to the real world,” said Tim Greinert, president of Junior Achievement of Wisconsin. “We are thankful to Kohl’s for creating the Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program as it will allow more students the opportunity to step outside the classroom and put critical life lessons in financial literacy and work readiness into practice at the JA Kohl’s Education Center.”“Through our valued partnership with Kohl’s, we have been able to give local youth the opportunity to experience everything from hands-on art creation to an interactive art gallery showcasing the fundamentals of art with the Kohl’s Art Generation program,” said Brigid Globensky, senior director of education and public programs at the Milwaukee Art Museum. “Now with the Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant Program, even more children will have the opportunity to come through the doors of the museum and enjoy additional art education experiences outside of what is provided in the classroom.” Educators from eligible schools are invited to apply for a Kohl’s Cares Field Trip Grant beginning March 1 through May 24, 2013. Eligible schools (K - grade 8) can apply for up to three grants valued up to $1,000 each and schools (grades 9 - 12) can apply for up to two grants valued up to $2,500 each to be used during the 2013/2014 academic year.
