There’s Still Time For Early Birds And Bright Ideas

Now that everyone is maxed out on the summer heat, if you’re a teacher, it’s time to begin considering cool and bright ideas!

The Bright Ideas grant program is available for teachers at public K-12 certified schools. Teachers can apply for grants up to $2,000 for innovative, classroom based ideas.

If you submit an application before August 14, you’ll be entered into the Early Bird drawing for one of five $100 Visa gift cards. Perhaps you’re looking for the right words to explain your project idea, the final deadline for applications is September 18.

Members’ Cents Make Sense For Community Enhancement

In June, the Community Assistance Corporation, or CAC, a not-for-profit foundation established by South River EMC, funded nine different non-profit and educational programs with grants totaling $56,202.16. Projects are funded through the electric cooperative’s Operation Round Up program.
