Teachers, Apply for a Bright Ideas Grant! - Carolina Country
April 2022

Randolph EMC is partnering with outstanding educators to bring creative learning to life! Starting this month, teachers can apply for a Bright Ideas education grant of up to $2,000 to fund projects that enhance student success in K–12 classrooms and would otherwise not be possible. Applications and more information about the program can be found at NCBrightIdeas.com.

Grants are available in all curriculum areas including art, science, history and mathematics. In 2021, Randolph EMC awarded twelve grants to local teachers. Over the past 28 years, Randolph EMC has invested more than $300,000 for innovative projects that have benefited students in our five county area. Bright Ideas grant applications will be accepted through September 15, but teachers are encouraged to apply early. Those who submit their application by August 15 will be entered to win one of five $100 Visa gift cards.

Supported by all 26 electric cooperatives in North Carolina, Bright Ideas grants have contributed $14.3 million to N.C. classrooms, funding a total of 13,536 projects that have benefited well over 2.8 million students statewide since 1994.
