Children deserve to live long, happy, and healthy lives and shouldn’t be in danger at school.
Unfortunately, many children face injuries and harm at school, often on the playground. More than 200,000 children go to the emergency room every year as a result of an injury on the playground and 15 children die each year as a result.
This scholarship seeks to honor the memory of Andrea Tyrah DeBruhl by promoting playground safety awareness to protect children from harm or injury.
Any undergraduate student in Georgia who is interested in pursuing early childhood education and has a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship.

Please tell us why it is important to have safe playgrounds and explain what actions you would take as a teacher to ensure that you receive extensive training in playground supervision.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 25, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
