REMC Accepting Bright Ideas Education Grant Applications
For more than 25 years, Rutherford EMC has partnered with local educators to bring learning to life through the Bright Ideas education grant program. Educators can now apply for Bright Ideas grants of up to $1,000 for innovative, hands-on classroom projects that would not otherwise be funded. Educators can learn more at www.remc.com and apply on line at www.ncbrightideas.com. Rutherford EMC expects to award over $15,000 in Bright Ideas grants to very innovative and deserving educators this year. The grants are available to qualifying K-12 school teachers for projects in any subject, and educators can apply individually or as a team. Applications will be accepted online only through Sept. 15, 2020. Teachers who submit their applications by the early bird deadline of Aug. 15 will also be entered to win one of five $100 Visa gift cards to be awarded statewide. To apply, teachers must include a budget explain the implementation, goals, creative elements and evaluation of the project and have approval from their school&rsquo s principal. Applications will be judged through a competitive evaluation process, with judges looking for projects that feature inventive and creative approaches to learning.
