The Strictly Briks Award Program mission is to expand creative play while inspiring a new generation of engineers, designers, mathematicians, and beyond. Strictly Briks aims to provide awards and establish strategic partnerships that will further the vision of “Dream, Create, Grow.”
Organizations applying for this award will receive up to $2,000 in Strictly Brik’s products to create a “Maker Space,” in their respective museum.

Who is Eligible?
- Museums that provide unique programming and/or community outreach initiatives directed toward children’s education and creative development.
- Domestic or International Museums
- Have to currently have or plan to implement a permanent “maker space,” exhibit. “A makerspace is a place where students can gather to create, invent, tinker, explore and discover using a variety of tools and materials (Rendina,2015).”
Strictly Briks reviews and considers every award request received from a qualifying, eligible organization.
Award proposals will be evaluated by the following criteria:

- Geographic reach: city, state, regional or national level.
- Employee engagement, ability to reach children.
- Appropriate scope of the initiative being supported or impact made to the community.

- Have a vision that aligns with our commitment to Pre-K-8 STEM education.
- House a permanent educational, “maker space,” area in their respective facility, or the ability to implement one within three (6) months of award date.
