WADESBORO — Time is running out for local K-12 teachers to apply for grants of up to $2,000 from Pee Dee Electric through the Bright Ideas Education Grant Program.

Educators with creative ideas for hands-on classroom projects must submit their application by Sept. 23.  Interested teachers can find the application, along with grant-writing tips and program information, on the Bright Ideas website at ncbrightideas.com. 

Grants will be awarded by Pee Dee Electric this fall to local educators for projects across all grade levels and subjects. Classroom teachers at qualifying schools in Richmond, Anson, Scotland, Stanly, and Montgomery counties can apply for grants individually or as a team. 

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Bright Ideas program. Since 1994, North Carolina’s electric cooperatives have awarded more than $12.2 million in Bright Ideas funding for nearly 11,700 projects supporting teachers and benefiting more than 2.3 million students. 

The Bright Ideas grant program is part of Pee Dee Electric’s ongoing commitment to community and education. To learn more about this and other community outreach efforts, visit pdemc.com.
