The Bright Ideas Grants program began at BEMC in 1994 as a way to help teachers fund creative classroom projects that otherwise would go unfunded. To date, BEMC has awarded more than $583,000 in education grants through this program. The final grant deadline was September 25 and all grant recipients will be announced in November.
