About WritingFix: Sponsors and Awards
grants and kudos received by our website

WritingFix is sponsored by the Northern Nevada Writing Project, a not-for-profit organization that operates from its offices at the University of Nevada-Reno. In 2001, the NNWP began using a portion of the annual federal grant it receives from the National Writing Project, as well as some local funding, to launch and maintain the WritingFix website. Our two goals, when we began this on-line resource, remain 1) to keep it free to use and 2) to keep it free of advertisements.

We're proud to say that we are sure this website will have a long life on the Internet, and our two goals will be maintained.

We're always looking to grow more, and we have been fortunate to have received community and corporate support at opportune times in our brief history. The grants listed below show who has supported us, and what projects their support has helped us build here at WritingFix.

If you're looking to support a fantastic education and technology project, please contact us at our University of Nevada-Reno offices. We'll gladly add your name to the list of sponsors below.

Recent WritingFix Awards:

2006-present: NWRPDP Grants

Since 2006, we have been very lucky to have a strong working relationship with Nevada's Northwest Regional Professional Development Program. The NWRPDP has granted the NNWP funding, which went to co-sponsoring workshops that subsequently built on-line resources at WritingFix. Here is a list of the pages we've built, all co-sponsored by NWRPDP funding:

We expect to maintain a long relationship with the NWRPDP, provided it continues to receive funding from the Nevada Legislature.

2008-2009: The iPod Grant

In November of 2007, the Washoe County School District's Educational Technology Department combined forces with the Northern Nevada Writing Project to outline a new lesson-building workshop for Washoe County teachers. In February of 2008, the first workshop was conducted. During the 2008-2009 school year, we hosted four workshops for interested teachers, and each participant received an iPod in exchange for creating a lesson that used incorporated the technology.

2006-2007: AT & T Grant

In Fall 2006, the Washoe Education Foundation gave a $25,000 AT & T educational technology grant to the Northern Nevada Writing Project to help them create and host five 16-hour new workshops in Northern Nevada between January and May of 2007. The online resource page and the workshop we designed because of their grant remains one of the most popular destinations for teachers at the WritingFix website.

2005-2006: SBC Grant

In Fall 2005, the Washoe Education Foundation and the SBC Corporation (now AT & T) became our first corporate sponsor of the WritingFix website, and our website grew thanks to their generosity. The online resource page and the workshop we designed because of their grant remains one of the most popular destinations for teachers at the WritingFix website.

2001-present: NNWP Grant Support

In April 2001, the Northern Nevada Writing Project began including in its annual budget monetary support for the maintaining and future growth of the WritingFix website. Each year, the NNWP pays for WritingFix's server space, for all software needed to keep the website functioning, for online services (like our site-sponsored ning) and a nominal stipend for the WritingFix webmaster.
