Rutherford Electric Membership Corporation, your local Touchstone Energy cooperative, is proud to offer educators at your school the opportunity to win grant funding through the Bright Ideas education grant program. Teachers can apply for Bright Ideas grants of up to $1,000 to fund creative, hands-on projects that would not otherwise be possible. The grant application and more information can be found atwww.NCBrightIdeas.com.
Since 1994, teachers statewide have received more than $10.2 million in Bright Ideas funding for 9,800 grants benefiting well over 2 million students. Help your school get in on the action by displaying the attached poster and encouraging your teachers to apply!
Educators who apply by the August 15 ‘early bird’ deadline will be automatically entered in a drawing for one of five $100 Visa gift cards. The final deadline to turn in an application is Friday, September 23. North Carolina’s electric cooperatives are committed to local communities, and we believe there is no more important investment than in the education of our youth. Please contact Chad Bailey if you have any questions about the program or application procedures at (800) 521-0920, (828) 245-1621 (ext. 450), or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for helping us reach the many great educators who are committed to making a difference for their students and have ‘bright ideas’ for creative approaches to learning!
