The Inno-Imagine Grants Program aims to inspire our Daystar community of students, staff and parents to create and implement bold ideas to enhance Daystar campuses and neighboring communities, aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Great ideas are truly valuable when they are turned into reality. Inno-Imagine grants enable great ideas to come to fruition through a financial grant and strategic support. One example is a group of Grade 7 students who wanted to create a more relaxing space in the school for students to decompress as their research showed increased academic performance associated with such spaces. The Inno-Imagine grant enabled these students to transform a meeting space in the middle school into a valuable meditation and relaxation nook with clear student guidelines on how to use the space. Our Grade 2 Sanlitun campus teachers were awarded a grant for their Olympic Postcard idea. All Grade 2 students designed postcards in honor of the 2022 Olympics with the best designs being printed and sold as postcards by our partner bookstores in Sanlitun. All proceeds generated were contributed to animal rescue – a cause that is very important to the grade 2 students.
If you, as a Daystar community member, have an idea to make a positive difference in our Daystar campuses or in the neighboring community, please submit a grant proposal by completing the application form!
