How we grant equipment

The Superspecs program works with Ohio schools to prevent eye injuries by donating safety glasses free of charge for career technical programs.

Our goal is to serve as many schools as possible. We give careful consideration to each application we receive. Participating schools applying for additional equipment to add classes or replace equipment will be served based on equipment availability. We hope that if you’ve already benefited from our program, you’ll support eye safety efforts by purchasing additional protective equipment through school funds.

This year's application window is now closed, and will reopen in May 2022. If your school qualifies, your equipment will be mailed to you for the upcoming school year.
