Wyoming Humanities recently awarded a $2,000 Spark Grant to the Albany County Public Library Foundation to support the library’s Young Writers Program. The program will take place on Fridays beginning October 27 at the Albany County Public Library in Laramie. The five-week series focuses on National Novel Writing Month and its connection to humanities through literature and storytelling, using hand-on activities and writing time. The series will conclude with a reception and awards ceremony.
Spark Grants are awarded based on communities’ needs and programs designed to spark new insights and perspectives. Funding is provided by the state of Wyoming through the Wyoming Department of State Parks and Cultural Resources. Grantees, who receive up to $2,000 with this opportunity, provide equal or greater matching funds and in-kind contributions. Wyoming Humanities’ grants generate significant social and economic impact five times greater than state funding.
