Kevin Sweet, (PhD candidate in ETMAP) and Sarah McCormick (MArt'20) co-authored and were awarded a $850,000 state grant with History Colorado and Kimba Rael of Centennial School District R-1 in San Luis, Colorado, to integrate local history and media practices into the curriculum and to develop a media 'innovation lab' for the students.

This award represents a critical pedagogical intervention that places local students, teachers and communities at the center of curriculum development, using media as a catalyst for change.
