Horry Electric Cooperative and Horry Telephone Cooperative are calling for applications for Bright Ideas, a grant program that provides funding for innovative classroom-based education projects. The deadline for applications is June 1.
“Bright Ideas” grants are intended to fund projects outside normal public school funding parameters and can be made available to all disciplines in grades K-12 in Horry County. A school may submit an application and teachers are limited to one application per year.
The grants awarded through the Bright Ideas program are funded with proceeds from the “Co-op Cup” golf tournament, an annual event jointly sponsored by Horry Electric and Horry Telephone.
Applications are available on horryelectric.com.
Five teachers at four schools in Horry County were recipients of $4,825 in Bright Ideas grant money in 2011.
