Application Deadline Approaching for Bright Ideas Grant

Middle school educators: Do you have an innovative or creative class project that may not be funded this school year? If so, consider applying for a Bright Ideas grant.

Bright Ideas is a grant program from Jackson EMC that funds creative and innovative classroom projects in middle schools. Educators who teach grades 6-8 can earn up to $2,000 for class projects that would not be funded otherwise. Grants can be used in face-to-face or digital learning environments. 

With a Bright Ideas grant, some of our recent recipients have conducted dissections using virtual reality technology, collected data from drones, purchased a wind tunnel to analyze aerodynamics and more.

To apply for a Bright Ideas grant, applications must be submitted online no later than September 8. Educators should consider how they could implement a Bright Ideas grant-funded program in a digital environment with students. Applicants must be state-certified educators in a public middle school in Jackson EMC’s service area.
