Santee Electric Cooperative is now accepting applications for
its ninth 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 and
only certified teachers may apply. 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 Monday, Oct. 27, 2014.
Recipients will be announced on December 1, 2 and 3, 2014 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 $14,000. 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 Mary Grace McGee at (843) 355-0599
or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org .
