Application for Big Cover Up youth project open to area schools
HUNTINGTON, W.VA.—United Way of the River Cities is accepting grant proposals from area high schools for The Big Cover Up youth initiative.
The Big Cover Up is a matching grant available to student service clubs that develop a project to provide coats, hats, gloves and other necessary warm clothing to younger students in need. High schools in Cabell, Wayne, Lincoln, and Mason counties in West Virginia, and in Lawrence County, Ohio, are eligible to apply.
“Now in its 19th year, The Big Cover Up has helped provide warm clothing to hundreds of local children and taught hundreds more high school students the joy of giving back to their community,” said Andrea Roy, director of community impact.
Matching funds raised by student groups are not required to be dollar-for-dollar for grant funds; monies raised, in-kind contributions, or discounts from retailers all can be counted as match. Each group must have a faculty sponsor. However, the project must be youth-led.
Grant awards are generously funded through a donation from Advantage Toyota. The application and complete project guidelines are available by contacting Roy at 304-523.-8929, ext. 107 or by e-mail to email@example.com. The application deadline is November 16, 2018.
United Way of the River Cities is a nonprofit organization, the mission of which is to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in their community. To learn more about the United Way of the River Cities or to donate please visit unitedwayrivercities.org.

Are you a teacher, public librarian, or afterschool program serving youth in grades 4-8 in WV? Register to receive a free NYSD Code Your World kit!
Help kids in your school, community, or afterschool program join more than 150,000 children across the country participate in the 11th annual 4-H National Youth Science Day (4-H NYSD) challenge this fall. This year’s challenge, Code Your World, teaches young people computer science skills through four engaging hands-on activities.
No prior computer science experience is needed for the teacher/facilitator or participating youth!
Developed by Google and West Virginia University Extension Service, this hands-on experience includes a computer-based activity on Google’s CS First platform, as well as three unplugged activities that bring coding to life through games and interaction. Code Your World is perfect for first-time and beginner coders, ages 8 to 14. Each kit comes equipped with all the materials necessary for youth to complete the experience, including instruction booklets for both youth and adult facilitators.
WV School Teachers, Public Libraries, and Afterschool Programs can register for a free kit here: https://wvu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_egmv0jwb739khM1
Supply is limited and registration will close when all kits are allocated. Kits will be distributed in late September.
4-H NYSD is an annual program that provides access and opportunity for kids everywhere to take an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) by participating in a hands-on STEM challenge. All kids everywhere are invited to participate in 4-H NYSD. Additional information can be found at https://4-h.org/parents/national-youth-science-day/. Code Your World kits are also available for sale here.
4-H NYSD 2018 was developed in collaboration with Google, with support from our national partners—BNY Mellon; Corteva AgriscienceTM , Agriculture Division of DowDuPontTM; and HughesNet. Funding to supply free kits to West Virginia schools, libraries, and afterschool programs was provided by the West Virginian University Provost’s Office.
