Teachers: Bring Projects to Life with a Bright Ideas Grant
Meet the Aug. 15 early bird deadline for a chance at $100
North Carolina’s electric cooperatives are accepting applications for Bright Ideas education grants to fund creative, classroom-based learning projects. The final deadline to apply is in September and can vary depending on the sponsoring electric cooperative in your area, but five lucky educators who submit their application by the early bird deadline of August 15, 2017, will win a $100 gift card.
Electric cooperatives expect to award about 600 Bright Ideas grants statewide during the 2017–2018 school year. The Bright Ideas education grant program is an example of the electric cooperatives’ commitment to community. Since 1994, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have awarded more than $10.9 million in Bright Ideas grants funding for more than 10,400 projects. Those projects have touched the lives of more than 2.1 million students.
Classroom teachers at qualifying schools can apply for grants individually or as a team. Visit ncbrightideas.com for the application, grant-writing tips and more information about the grant program.
