Calling All Teachers! Apply for a Cobb Tank Grant Today

Teachers, whether your idea involves chickens, bunnies, racing bikes, 3D printing, a planetarium, or something extra unusual, now is the time to pitch your innovative ideas on how to increase student success.  

The annual Cobb Tank grant competition is accepting applications from teachers just like you. The deadline is October 3. 

Cobb Tank, which is the brainchild of Superintendent Chris Ragsdale, is modeled off the popular TV show, “Shark Tank,” where eager contestants pitch their idea to a panel of “sharks” in hopes of being awarded funding for their project. 

Last year, contestants won a combined $74,000 in Cobb Tank grants to help impact student learning in creative ways.  

On October 31, this year’s finalists will learn that they have been selected to enter the Cobb Tank November 21 and pitch their ideas to the “sharks,” which in the past has included district staff, students, and community members.
