NHEE receives more and more requests each year to help fund field trips that get students outside exploring and learning. This year's requests totaled over $7,000 and would help get 1,336 students outdoors. Our current budget only allows us to award $2,000 per year but with your help maybe we can offer more in the future because clearly there is a NHEEd!
