Kyle Schwartz, the third-grade teacher who started the “I wish my teacher knew” initiative, shares why teachers and students should get involved with Letters to Lowe’s.

This year, Lowe’s will reach 10 years of helping more than 10,000 schools create better educational experiences through its Toolbox for Education grant program. To celebrate this exciting milestone and keep the momentum going, Lowe’s is asking students and teachers from across the country to tell us how $25,000 can help their schools become a better place to learn.

4 Schools $25,000 Each

Through this special Letters to Lowe’s writing campaign, four public schools will be awarded $25,000 and receive hands-on assistance from our Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers.

The Process

Students at public K-12 schools are encouraged to work with their teachers to submit online letters and photos detailing how a Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant can help improve their school. Lowe’s will narrow the selection to 10 finalist schools and then invite friends, family and supporters to vote for the top four. We will then announce the final four recipients of the $25,000 grants and bring these ideas to life with the help of our Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers.
