Save The Frogs Day is extremely popular with schools, and this EnviroKidz grant will enable SAVE THE FROGS to provide Save The Frogs Day event packets to 100 participating schools and environmental groups in Canada, the USA and Mexico. Priority will be given to schools and groups that have held events in past years and demonstrated their competence and dedication towards amphibian conservation. The award would also help us to coordinate and promote the event so that it gets the maximum publicity and participation. Thanks for helping by voting! www.savethefrogs.com/vote

The SAVE THE FROGS! Scholarship Fund
The SAVE THE FROGS! Scholarship Fund was created to fund awards to cover the tuition of talented environmental conservationists as they train at SAVE THE FROGS! Academy. Your tax-deductible contribution will help us increase the number of amphibian conservationists in the world. It will also yield tangible conservation results as each student's project accomplishes a result of value to the overall SAVE THE FROGS! movement. So the more scholarships we are able to award, the more frogs we will save! Students of all nationalities, ethnicities and backgrounds are eligible for the scholarships. To donate to the Scholarship Fund, simply donate and then email us asking us to direct your contribution to the fund.
