There are so many well written and conceived grant proposals floating around in the funder world it feels only right to turn the spotlight on these winning efforts now and then. After 40 years of grantwriting I know the time, planning and downright strategizing that goes into writing a winning proposal and this contest is meant to highlight those herculean efforts.

We have the honor of hosting a set of amazing judges (link) that have helped us determine who would 'win' this contest, and who would be runners up. It wasn't easy! With over XX applications it took time and diligence on the part of GrantStation staff as well as this panel of excellent judges.

We are very pleased with the GrantPrize winner (add name of writer and organization). I think you will agree that their submission was stellar. - Cynthia Adams, GrantStation CEO
