The application period is now closed. Stay tuned for fire year 2020 digital storytelling micro-grants this winter!
At The American Wildfire Experience, we want to encourage and promote quality wildland fire storytelling that helps influence public perceptions about wildland fire and shines a light on our human experience with fire. It is our hope that these grants will encourage thoughtful wildland fire storytelling by active content creators on social media, improve the production value of our grantee’s creative works by providing digital storytelling equipment/tools, and will begin to build a cadre of wildland firefighters developing engaging content well aligned with AWE’s mission. Each micro-grant is $500; grantees are selected by a grant selection committee made up of American Wildfire Experience board members.
