A local electric co-op is accepting applications from educators for grants of up to $2,000 to implement new ideas to help students learn.
Tideland EMC is funding the 2019 Bright Ideas education grant program, which offers grants of up to $2,000 each to fund innovative, hands-on classroom projects that have no other source of funding.
BBright Ideas grant applications can be submitted until September 15 by any K-12 teacher in any subject area, who teaches in Beaufort, Craven, Dare, Hyde, Pamlico, Tyrrell or Washington counties.
To apply, teachers must include a budget; explain the implementation, goals, creative elements and evaluation of the project; and have approval from their school’s principal.
Applications will be judged through a competitive evaluation process, with judges looking for projects that feature inventive and creative approaches to learning.
