The past school year was particularly challenging as teachers searched for new ways to engage their students in remote, classroom and hybrid learning. BEMC helped, with Bright Ideas Education grants going to 29 teachers who received $32,100 for online and in-person projects, benefitting more than 7,000 students in Brunswick and Columbus counties.
If you’re an educator thinking creatively about how to best inspire your students this coming year, now is a good time to apply for a Bright Ideas Education Grant. Brunswick Electric has been providing grants for up to $2,000 for innovative classroom projects that would otherwise go unfunded. Since its founding in 1994, the program has contributed more than $800,000 to area teachers.
