Educators: Apply for a Bright Ideas Grant

Are you a middle school educator with an idea for an innovative or creative classroom project 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 classroom projects that would not be funded otherwise.

With a Bright Ideas grant, some of our recent recipients have established an aeroponic garden, used small “smartcars” to test concepts of physics and created a model of a city.

To apply for a Bright Ideas grant, applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. September 9.

Applicants must be state-certified educators in a public middle school in Jackson EMC’s service area.
