Bright Ideas grants are intended to fund projects outside normal
school funding limits and are available to all subject areas in
grades K-12 in Williamsburg, Georgetown, Clarendon,
and southern Florence counties. The grant may not be used 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.
Over the past eleven years the program has funded everything
from multicultural fairs to forensic studies of car crashes.
Teachers have purchased books, ipads, cameras, Legos, robotics
equipment, ukuleles and much more through the grant. One school put
on a theatre production of The Wizard of Oz, while another school
built a stadium entrance as part of the carpentry class.
