The EAST Initiative is pleased to announce the recipients of the Arkansas Department of Education’s EAST grant and the Arkansas STEM Works grant for EAST Core programs. These grants are the result of a year-long application and vetting process.

This year, over 75 schools and districts from across the state of Arkansas expressed interest in implementing a new EAST program.

The EAST/EAST Core programs for the 2013/14 school year are: Ashdown Jr. High, Bentonville High School, Bergman High School, Crossett Middle School, Dover Middle School, Hackett Schools, Harrison High School, Helen Tyson Middle School (Springdale), Hot Springs Middle School, Manila High School, Pinkston Middle School (Mtn. Home), Sulphur Rock Magnet Elementary (Batesville), Malvern High School (EAST Core grant) and Monticello High School (EAST Core Grant).

EAST students excel in twenty-first century skills developed through projects built on cutting edge technology, teamwork, critical thinking and innovation. Over 150,000 students have participated in EAST since 1996. The national non-profit currently operates in over 220 programs in six states (Arkansas, Iowa, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, California, and Louisiana).
