Each school submitted a video celebrating their theater program and a 500-word essay explaining why their school should be awarded the grant and how they will use the $10,000 should they win. They also submitted a letter of recommendation from a school principal or administrator endorsing the application.

NBC is facilitating the program in partnership with the Educational Theatre Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to shaping lives through theatre education.

The grants were inspired by “Rise,” a drama about a high school theatre department and its effects on a small town set to premiere March 13.

In other news, actor Chris Pratt received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
