Bright Ideas Grant Application Deadline Approaching

Middle school educators: Do you have an innovative or creative class project in need of funding? If so, consider applying for a Bright Ideas grant. The deadline to apply is September 7.

Bright Ideas is a grant program from Jackson EMC that funds creative and innovative classroom projects in middle schools. Educators who teach sixth through eighth grades can earn up to $2,000 for projects conducted either face-to-face or in digital learning environments.

Bright Ideas grants have been awarded to educators providing instruction in history, language arts, math, science, social studies, information technology, music, drama and more. Some of our recent recipients have incorporated artificial intelligence and virtual reality in their lessons, along with other technologies.

Bright Ideas grant applications must be submitted online no later than September 7. Applicants must be state-certified educators in a public middle school in Jackson EMC’s service area.
