Now that everyone is enjoying summer vacation, if you’re a teacher, it may have gotten your creative juices flowing. Take some time to submit a Bright Ideas grant, electric cooperative officials urge.
The Bright Ideas grant program is available for teachers at public K-12 certified schools. Teachers can apply for grants up to $2,000 for innovative, classroom based ideas.
Those submitting an application before Aug. 15, will be entered into the Early Bird drawing for one of five $100 Visa gift cards. The final deadline for all applications is Sept. 19.
Start composing today by visiting www.ncbrightideas.com. You can complete your application at your own speed with the ability to save your application and make changes as you go, said Julie Wahl with South River Membership Cooperative.
There is no limit to the amount of applications that can be submitted, so don’t be nervous to share any ideas that you think will help your students learn and retain more, she added.
Additional information, as well as grant writing tips and sample applications are available for viewing on the Bright Ideas Web site. So teachers, visit www.ncbrightideas.com, complete an application and share your idea.
Thus far, the Bright Ideas Grant program has funded over $9.1 million in grants and has touched the lives of over 1.6 million North Carolina students.
