Proposals must address the following priority:

Projects combining long-term, classroom-integrated Meaningful Watershed Educational Experiences (MWEEs) for students and teacher professional development.
All proposals should also demonstrate a connection to the Great Lakes basin through the watershed system so that students understand how their actions can affect the Great Lakes ecosystem through their local watershed.
Additionally, priority will be given to applicants who
show prior experience in working in the Great Lakes region,
show prior experience with Great Lakes regional issues,
demonstrate partnerships with local organizations in the Great Lakes region that have prior experience on proposed projects or regional issues.
All proposals submitted should also address the following universal elements:

Involve external sharing and communication: projects should include a mechanism that encourages the students, teachers, and project staff to share their experiences with peers, other students, and their community (e.g., through a student mentoring program, newsletters, peer-to-peer presentations, conferences, community events, media/social media).
Demonstrate partnerships: project proposals should include multiple partners. A partnership is a collaborative working relationship between two or more organizations. Partners should be actively involved in the project, not just supply equipment or curricula. Letters from each partner must be submitted with the application package to demonstrate the level of commitment and involvement.
Be aligned to state and/or local learning standards.
Demonstrate alignment to the NOAA Education Strategic Plan, and incorporate NOAA Resources such as data, places, or collaborations with NOAA entities as partners. NOAA has a wealth of applicable products, places, and services, as well as a cadre of scientific and professional experts who can enhance student experiences both in the classroom and in the field and serve as career role models.
Be aligned to environmental literacy principles, as appropriate: “Great Lakes Literacy Principles” and/or “Climate Literacy: The Essential Principles of Climate Science”.
