Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Program

The Voya Unsung Heroes Awards Program provides educators nationwide with grants to help fund
their innovative class projects. Full-time educators, teachers, principals, paraprofessionals, and
classified staff with effective projects that improve student learning are eligible to apply. Applicants
must work at an accredited K-12 public or private school located in the United States. The 100
finalists each receive an award of $2,000. At least one award will be granted in each of the 50 United
States, provided one or more qualified applications are received from each state. Of the 100 finalists,
three will be selected for additional financial awards of $5,000, $10,000, and $25,000. All awards
must be used to further the projects within the school or school system. Applications must be submitted
online by April 30, 2017. Visit the Unsung Heroes Awards Program website to access the application and
