Bright Ideas

Bright Ideas has funded 11,000 education grants in N.C. 
Will yours be next?

At North Carolina’s electric cooperatives, we believe there is no more important investment than in our state’s youth. That’s why for 25 years, the electric co-ops have offered Bright Ideas education grants to Tar Heel teachers in K-12 classrooms across the state. 

Bright Ideas grants provide funding for innovative, classroom-based projects that would otherwise not be possible. Since 1994, we have touched the lives of more than 2.2 million students who have participated in 11,000 Bright Ideas projects, and given out more than $11.5 million. Each year, close to 600 grants are funded across the state.

Surry-Yadkin EMC will provide assistance for up to $6,250 in grant applications in 2020-2021.
