Accepting Applications for 2011 Bright Ideas
Article was added on Thursday, September 29, 2011
Santee Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for
its sixth round of Bright Ideas, a grant program to provide funding
for innovative classroom-based education projects. Bright Idea
applications can be downloaded using the link below.
Bright Ideas grants are intended to fund projects outside normal
school funding parameters and are available to all disciplines in
grades K-12 in Williamsburg, Georgetown, Clarendon, and lower
Florence counties. They are not for professional development.
A school may submit more than one application, but a teacher
is limited to one application per school year. All completed
applications must be received at Santee Electric Cooperative by
October 31, 2011.
Recipients will be announced on December 6, 7 and 8, 2011 with
the Bright Ideas Prize Team. If a teacher at your school
wins, we want to surprise them in their classroom.
This fall teachers will be competing for $12,000. Grants
are awarded for up to $1,000. Santee Electric Cooperative
adopted the idea from the North Carolina Electric Cooperatives and
Palmetto Electric Cooperative, which have awarded more than $2
million since the program's inception in 1994.
If you have any questions about the grant program or application
procedures please contact Jay Kirby at (843) 355-0501 or at
1-800-922-1604. Please also feel free to reach us by e-mail
