A few months ago I received my first grant! Yes, at the age of 10, you can apply and receive grants. If your young like me, don’t let your age stop you! You can do great things too.
My grant is for placing monofilament recycling stations near boat ramps to reduce thrown out fishing line which can entangle and harm/kill wildlife. I know because I ah e seen the effects from this and I want to help. With help from the Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency, I have placed 2 and plan to put more out in the future. This is a simple project but no one near me has thought about it.
I have met with our mayor and other local influencers on this project and I am very appreciative everyone is willing to listen and help in any way.
