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 who is interested in pursuing early childhood education and has a 3.0 GPA or higher may apply for this scholarship.
