Concord has been rated one of the safest and best places to live, not only in New Hampshire, but in the country.
The Chamber has awarded over $161,000 to area teachers and educational programs through the Business Grants for Teachers initiative. This year, the Education Task Force selected five projects submitted by area teachers for students in grades three through twelve, giving away over $4,000 in grants. Schools awarded include: Abbot Downing School, Bow High School, Bow Memorial School and Concord High School.
This year's grants will fund projects focused on science, engineering, history, writing, and arts. In the "We are America" literary project, students will dive into history and personal storytelling as they write essays to be printed in a book that will be given to local libraries and dignitaries. Another project will allow students to collect data on a local salamander population and submit it to wildlife databases. Other projects will create a display area for student artworks, install 3D printers for students to put engineering and geometry skills to use, and build a therapeutic sensory space for students who struggle with autism and other developmental and cognitive challenges.
We're proud to support these innovative projects and help foster the next generation of leaders in the capital region. The Business Grants for Teachers initiative is made possible by the Chamber's annual Funds for Education Golf Tournament.
The Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce is dedicated to developing economic opportunities, a strong business climate and enhanced quality of life in its communities throughout the region.
