Starting April 1, Halifax EMC is accepting applications for the 2020 Bright Ideas Education Grant Program. Educators can apply for grants of up to $2,000 to fund creative, hands-on projects in K–12 classrooms. Teachers can apply individually or as a team, and grants are available for projects in all subject areas.

Since the program began 26 years ago, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have collectively awarded more than $12.9 million in grants to K–12 teachers for 12,300 projects benefitting 2.5 million students across the state. In 2019, over $700,000 was awarded for more than 660 projects across the state, the most funding ever given in a single grant cycle.

Applications are accepted through Sept. 15, 2020. To learn more and apply for a Bright Ideas grant, visit NC Bright Ideas.
