At A Glance

Grant Supports Bazaar

The Simply Bazaar project was paid for by a $750 grant from Economics Arkansas. Goals for the project were to teach students about free enterprise, their own human capital in developing skills, how to create a budget, to use recycled goods and to establish community connections. From the grant, an estimated $400 was available for student loans while $250 paid for transportation to local craft fairs and $100 bought instructional materials.
